Payments networks have always been hampered by a lack of interoperability. Now, with central bank digital currencies and private sector projects proceeding at a breakneck pace around the world, a new generation of payments solutions is approaching. But with varied technologies and aims driving the research, rather than solving old problems, we risk adding a new layer of complexity. This roundtable explores these interoperability issues and the range of solutions that are available to central banks to overcome and prevent such obstacles.
