We were invited to paricipate in this very interesting workshop hosted by R3.

The session will seek to assess the case for CBDC for retail transactions. It shall address monetary policy and financial stability implications including commercial bank disintermediation but also new business opportunities related to CBDC and how CBDC may facilitate payments for small and medium sized enterprises. With differing models of CBDC allowing for different delivery solutions, the panel will epxlore the net gains from retail CBDC including for national payment system diversification, resilience and payments choice.
