Digital currencies – cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and CBDCs – are changing the long-term plans of both central banks and global payments providers, and making everyone rethink account-based and currency-based systems. In an unprecedented move, prior to launching domestic CBDCs, multi-country pilots are exploring the promise and risks of cross-border CBDC systems.
This workshop is designed for payments professionals who want to come up to speed quickly on digital currency essentials, how these new currencies impact the payments ecosystem, and how they may someday reshape everything from the six payments domains to our global economy.
We begin the workshop by examining token-based payment systems and how they differ from account-based payment systems. We consider the two types of money and where stablecoins and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) fit within these categorizations. After reviewing the fundamentals of blockchain and distributed ledger technology, we look at the key design questions for digital currency systems. After reviewing the various stakeholders required to process these payments, we dive into stablecoins, central bank digital currencies, and survey the cross-border CBDC models being piloted.
