New Malaysia, New Ringgit? Yay Or Nay?
Disclaimer: This could be what you call fake news cause to be real with y’all, we don’t know where these pop out from – but it does look cool.
After being shared on Twitter with 4k retweets and counting, user @sheikh_anon stated that this could be our new Ringgit Malaysia look. To be fair, it doesn’t look all that bad. It’s pretty hip, we guess? Except for that RM50 note, cause low-key it looks like our previous RM2 that didn’t survive through the years.
The pop of colours really makes the money stand out and there’s even an RM1000 banknote? Imagine receiving change for that one. Although it’s uncertain as to where these designs come from, another Twitter user, @Zainuddin1987 stated that this might be the “new Ringgit Malaysia from our new Gov as proposed by Tun M himself.” Somehow, we still doubt that but let’s see what happens…
He continued by saying it’s a new tactic to track down the misuse of money by past Ministers so that when these new notes are implemented, the corrupt parties will be forced to exchange old notes to new ones therefore exposing themselves or rendering their dirty money obsolete. Geddit? It’s kind of like how India got rid of their ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes in 2016 in an effort to stop illegal money from being laundered.
Regardless of whether the motive to stop corruption and money laundering is true or not, or even if these new banknotes are legit news or not, most netizens just like the look of the unconfirmed “new” RM.
