Panel | Central Bank Digital Currencies: End of the Road for Cash?
Retail Central Bank Digital Currencies as an alternative to physical cash is an enticing prospect for many countries; it would significantly reduce costs associated with printing money, ensure the general public has access to central bank issued currency, and could counter illegal acts such as money laundering. However, the most crucial characteristic of cash is the trust that the public has in it. Despite the potential benefits, it is not clear if CBDC will, in fact, replace cash. In the face of this challenge, how can CBDC garner the trust that cash holds? What design elements can ensure that it is accepted widely?
