The path to CBDC: what we can learn from pilot projects
Successful central bank digital currency implementation and adoption will rely on a myriad of interconnecting factors and a well-orchestrated execution.
OMFIF’s Digital Monetary Institute and Giesecke+Devrient are convening a private roundtable to explore key design criteria to ensure user adoption, finding the right balance between challenges, motivations and opportunities for all stakeholders in the future CBDC ecosystem. It also examines what we have learned from the various pilot programmes and CBDCs that have already launched.
Fabio Araujo, economist and director of the Digital Real project at the Banco Central do Brasil, shares insights from the LIFT Challenge, which evaluated digital real uses cases including programmability and dual offline payments.
This meeting allows for informal exchanges and a better appreciation of participants’ viewpoints. The roundtable is off the record, held under the Chatham House Rule and for representatives primarily from central banks and multilateral organisations.
