This is disturbing on so many levels. Half the fun of Monopoly was piling up the brightly colored bills. Does this mean that no one gets to be the banker? What will we call money of dubious value now? "Monopoly credit"?
Which leads me to the cynical part. Is this really about updating the game to modern times, or is this teaching kids to be good little credit spenders? Does the game allow you to go into debt now? So much for using Monopoly to teach financial responsibility. Or math skills.
Of course, this may just be me overreacting to another lost piece of childhood. Sigh.
