Tune in May 14 to learn what Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and stablecoins mean for the future of money
Why CBDC Matters
Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) has emerged as one of the most compelling blockchain use cases for the banking industry. According to the Bank of International Settlements, over 70% of central banks are actively exploring digital currency, and in light of declining cash use, emerging forms of privately-issued money, and the COVID-19 pandemic, many believe the shift toward digital payments for central banks is increasingly imminent as a solution to improve financial access.
In this webinar with industry experts, you’ll learn the fundamentals of CBDC and the potential benefits, risks and challenges for both central banks and global economic infrastructure.
Specifically, we’ll explore:
- The rationales for retail CBDCs.
- The potential implications for payment service providers.
- The design considerations Central Banks are currently exploring.
- What specific roles and responsibilities would the private sector (commercial banks, payment service providers, retailers etc.) play?
