Summary

Many digital business pros feel that they need to get a better understanding of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs); here, we provide guidance on representative country-specific initiatives. While widespread issuance of CBDCs isn’t imminent, practically all countries are assessing the options and implications. Whether or not distributed ledger technology (DLT, aka blockchain) will be part of the technology stack for CBDCs remains an open question.
