Do you ever wonder what journey your cash has been on before it came to you? In the U.S. alone there are more bank notes than ever in circulation. As of December 31st, 2015 there are approximately 38.1 billion bank notes in circulation*. Yet, we have no idea about the travels these notes have been on. We thought bank notes must have a really interesting life and must travel far and from country to country, so we created Note Follower.
A search engine for bank notes
Note Follower is kind of like a search engine crossed with a social network for bank notes. The site allows a profile to be created for each bank note, a profile can only be created once for a given note and will show the name of the first person to add the note! If you come across a note which already has a profile created by someone else, you can post on it and add your part of the note’s story.
Follow the paper trail
You can also follow a note to see any notifications about others who have posted to the note’s profile page. If you use cash frequently, especially different currencies in other countries, Note Follower can be used to help you see the combined value of the cash you’ve been in contact with.
We wanted Note Follower to be available to as many people as possible. So, we built in support for the top twenty currencies traded worldwide from the U.S. Dollar to the South African rand. Anyone’s account can add notes from all available currencies. We also wanted to keep Note Follower as open as possible, so no account is required to search for notes you come across.
If you are interested in the idea and would like to give the site a go, you can find Note Follower at www.notefollower.com.
