Who invent the money?

Currency dates back centuries. The first uses of currency were said to be used in Ancient Egypt and even earlier, Mesopotamia and Sumer. Many things were used as currency including beads, shells, gold, coins, and many other things. Anything can be used as currency as long as it is accepted for a good or service. Many believe that in the mid 600s in China, paper money was invented. Paper money was much lighter than many other materials used for currency and it was much more efficient. Current currencies include paper money and coins. Yet, bartering is still accepted in many places.
