In this Tomorrow’s Transaction webinar we looked at Digital Currency.
As coverage of central banks considering digital currencies reaches the mainstream media, we’ll be exploring the landscape and understanding some of the drivers behind this consideration. Do we need a new form of currency to help solve financial inclusion? Are CBDC’s the answer to ensuring a fairer, faster and cheaper way to send money cross border? What are the down sides to this – can a CBDC destabilise traditional banking? And what are the potential architectures to be considered?
Consult Hyperion’s Dave Birch and Howard Hall were joined by Jill Carlson, Co-Founder at Open Money Initiative, and Ben Dyson, Lead on Central Bank Digital Currencies & Cryptoassets at the Bank of England.
