Digital Currencies

Digital currencies are profoundly changing how people, and nations, transact.

Overview of Digital Currencies


Digital currencies are tokens of value and take multiple forms including cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, stablecoins, and central bank digital currencies (CDBCs).


Each digital currency is unique in its design, governance, goals, and capabilities. For example, cryptocurrencies today often act as an investment asset, while stablecoins pegged in value to fiat currencies or other assets lend themselves to payments, and CDBCs are considered an equivalent to traditional fiat


Digital currencies and the concept of “programmable money” have implications for banks, service providers, businesses, individuals, and nation states. Learn about recent developments of pilots and launches happening in the world today.
