Cross-Border Collaborations in Web3 – Project Dunbar and Point Zero Forum: Green Shoots Series 2022


In this special Green Shoots session, learn how countries are catalysing the Web3 movement through two inaugural cross-border collaborations.


Central banks are exploring how CBDCs issued on a common platform can be used across borders for faster, cheaper and safer payments. This is the most efficient model for payments connectivity but is also the most challenging to achieve. Project Dunbar is one of the first to successfully resolve the key challenges and build prototypes to prove the technical viability of the concept.

In this session organised in partnership with the BIS Innovation Hub (Singapore Centre), hear from participating central banks in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and South Africa on how they have resolved challenges around governance, access policies and regulatory differences across jurisdictions. Learn about how the technical prototypes developed pave the way for future regional and global payments platforms, and the wide-ranging implications beyond payments.
