Digital Currency Series (Part 2): Decentralising CBDCs: Visionary or Irony? | The Green Shoots Series 2021
We brought together visionaries and early adopters from the public blockchain space to appreciate how we can apply their learnings from the decentralised world to the “centralised” finance world: Is decentralising CBDCs a visionary move towards enabling next-generation settlement systems? Or is it completely irreconcilable, when central to CBDCs and fiat money is that it is issued by a central bank, a trusted central party? How do we resolve this paradox, and can this lead to better ways of thinking about financial infrastructures?
This session is supported by Temasek and will be streamed live from Bridge
