    Would you perhaps have any examples of their usage, and/or what do you understood about those words from your research? Nov 30 '20 at 5:00

現金 げんきん means cash, while 金 かね means money.

  • Does this means 金 かね is more general than 現金 げんきん?

  • Yes. But please note 金 かね sounds a bit blunt. お金 おかね is polite form. Dec 1 '20 at 8:12
