Lecture Series (online): Prof. Dr. Niepelt – Digital Money and Central Bank Digital Currency

This lecture series is about "Digital Money and Central Bank Digital Currency" with Dr. Prof. Dirk Niepelt, Director of Study Centre Gerzensee, Foundation of the Swiss National Bank. Associate Professor University Bern.

About

This column examines the proposal for such currency and assesses the opportunities and risks. It argues that while preparations for the launch of Libra have not proceeded according to plan, it has become clear that for central banks, maintaining the status quo is not an option.
