rCBDCs: Real Potential or FOMO?

 

Thursday 29th June 

 

With: 

| Samuel Eddie Mogensen, Digitalization Task Force Lead, Innovation & Secretariat Financial Stability, Danmarks Nationalbank

| Michal Vodrážka, Director of the Financial Market Regulation Division III, Czech National Bank

 

While some consider retail CBDCs as necessary instruments in a rapidly evolving financial landscape, capable of enhancing the retail payment ecosystem and the economy, some remain agnostic.  

In this session, guests from two prominent European Central Banks, Samuel Eddie Mogensen (Danmarks National Bank) and Michal Vodrážka (Czech Republic National Bank), joined FNA for a thought-provoking debate that took us back to the fundamental question, do we actually need a retail CBDC, as we examined divergent views on the potential rCBDCs offer with two jurisdictions who have no immediate plans to design or test one.
