Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) is a topic widely discussed. But is CBDC a valid future payment solution for a central bank and the public? What are the scope, benefits, and risks to be considered, and what are the challenges to be observed if introducing a CBDC? How do they work in the domestic and international payment environment?
In this Immersion Session, representatives from the Central Bank of Uruguay, which has decided to issue a digital currency, and the Bank for International Settlement, which published a report on CBDC, will debate this topic.
