What is CBDC?

Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) refers to a digital representation of a nation's official currency, which is created and supervised by the central bank of that country. Unlike decentralized cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, CBDCs are centrally regulated and administered by a governing authority.

CBDCs are supported by the full faith and credit of the central bank, making them legally recognized as a valid form of payment within the nation's borders. By introducing CBDCs, central banks aim to leverage the benefits of digital technology while maintaining control over monetary policy and ensuring the stability of the national currency.
Transactions can be settled in real-time, reducing the need for intermediaries and the time it takes for funds to move between accounts.
Reduced Transaction Costs
Eliminate the need for costly currency conversion and international wire transfers with digital currencies.
Central banks can monitor and trace the flow of funds more effectively, which can help combat illegal activities like money laundering and tax evasion.
Policy Implementation
Central banks can program and set conditional payments directly on digital currency holdings, providing greater control over the money supply.
CBDCs can incorporate advanced security features, making them more resistant to counterfeiting and fraud compared to physical banknotes and coins.
Financial Inclusion
CBDCs can help promote financial inclusion by providing access to digital financial services to individuals who may not have access to traditional banking systems.
