Exploration of central bank digital currency has accelerated, with 86% of central banks said to be researching the technology. While consensus is emerging on the importance of mixed responsibilities between the public and private sector, much has yet to be explored, including defining the roles of intermediaries, how to avoid fragmentation and how to ensure interoperability within an entire CBDC ecosystem.
OMFIF’s Digital Monetary Institute and Giesecke+Devrient convene a private roundtable on ‘Interoperability: Making CBDCs fully operational.’
This session will address:
· Why interoperability matters – the importance of establishing common definitions
· Technical considerations: how to ensure a seamless integration with existing payment solutions and support future payment scenarios
· How private and public cooperation can drive CBDC adoption
· Leveraging potential to foster growth by ensuring CBDC works for new business models, all players, and use cases
We will hold two sessions of this meeting:
Wednesday, 27 April at 16:00 (London) / 11:00 (New York)
Friday, 29 April at 9:00 (London) / 16:00 (Singapore)
If you are based in Asia, please join our session on 29 April.
16:00 – 17:00 (London)
11:00 – 12:00 (New York)
The aim of this meeting is to allow for informal exchanges and a better appreciation of participants’ viewpoints. These roundtables are off-the-record and open to central banks, international financial institutions, academics and private sector players with a stake in digital currency development.
