The inaugural DMI Symposium

Building on OMFIF’s status as an independent think tank for central banks, the Digital Monetary Institute has brought together policy-makers, technologists and financiers to push the boundaries of the discussion on practical and theoretical aspects of digital currencies and the future of capital markets.

At a time when the digitalisation of the economy has accelerated, the DMI utilises its position to facilitate public and private sector dialogue on the future of money. The inaugural DMI symposium takes these discussions to a new level, using our convening power within the central banking community and extensive network of banks, technology solution providers and institutional investors to advance trusted and efficient innovations in digital solutions.
