Central banks worldwide are actively exploring the case for central bank digital currency (CBDC). CBDCs have the potential to fundamentally alter the existing financial / monetary system.
We will cover the different types of CBDCs and their use as well as list the potential benefits and concerns around them. We will explore the possible implications for financial institutions and potential changes to the existing status quo.
The webinar will delve into the recent proposal from the Bank of England and HM Treasury for a digital pound. We will cover core principles, use cases, setup, privacy concerns, amount limits and access amongst other points.
