The paper aims to unravel the future implications of digitized money, i.e. e-Money. The Internet revolution has not left the financial sector untouched. e-Money shall be its fallout. The paper explores the impact of e-Money envisaged on businesses and monetary transactions as a whole. The infinite time divisibility of currency on the net shall help e-Money acquire a truly universal character and shall make it the driver of the global e- economy. This would also considerably affect the control functions of the Central Banks. Keywords: Barter System, e-Money, interest rates, time divisibility of money, universal currency, money multiplier, high-powered money.
