The Road to Global Adoption of Central Bank Digital Currencies as Delineated by NChain

30 August 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ZUG, Switzerland. Today, nChain AG (“nChain”) released its CBDC Playbook, a 40-page document outlining a practical strategy for governments interested in implementing a CBDC.

Although there are other, more scholarly introductions to digital national currencies, this one provides a unique perspective as the result of a business company creating solutions for the market. The paper demonstrates why the sole obstacle to adoption is making a poor choice of CBDC architecture and argues that central banks are ideally positioned to initiate the scoping process as soon as possible. A downloadable version of the Playbook can be found on the nChain website.

I’m happy to show our partners and clients the playbook we’ve developed. We predict that this new technology will significantly improve economic growth, monetary policy, and financial access. CBDCs are often misunderstood and even confused with cryptocurrencies, but “our objective is to show that the appropriate system design gives a wonderful opportunity for governments and central banks,” said Simit Naik, nChain’s Director of Commercial and Strategy.

The banking and payment systems industries are ready for change. People’s attitudes on cash have shifted, and many are now accustomed to making mobile payments, especially in the wake of Covid. This change has been made possible by blockchain technology, which enables peer-to-peer transactions like physical cash while also providing the security of digital payments. More than ninety governments, accounting for over 95 percent of global GDP, are looking into a CBDC, and forty of those have a working proof of concept or currency.

Years of study and discussions with governments throughout the world informed nChain’s CBDC Playbook. The document elaborates on the reasons why central banks should adopt electronic national currencies, which include features like anti-money-laundering tools, automatic taxes, real-time economic data, and more. The playbook also includes advice for protecting yourself from cyber threats and excessive centralization. This first edition handbook covers everything from the background of CBDCs to its motivations, structure, usual schedule for implementation, and technical requirements (such as digital wallet apps and storage solutions).

nChain has been at the forefront of the CBDC discussion by publishing white papers, collaborating with governments, participating in conferences, and developing commercially viable CBDC solutions. We’d love to get your thoughts on the playbook and whether or not you’re interested in working with us to get a CBDC off the ground. Our CBDC solution, which includes the nChain Digital Cash and Digital Money products, may be learned more about on our website, where you can also request a demo.
