PwC Global CBDC Index
PwC published its first index assessing CBDC progress globally. It was divided into two parts –
- Retail CBDC (led by Bahamas)
- Interbank CBDC (led by Thailand)
The document provides a high level overview of the work being done in CBDCs by the UK, China, Sweden and more.
“More than 60 central banks have already entered the central bank digital currency race. CBDCs will be a game-changer, providing access to alternative payment solutions for citizens and corporates, as well as reinventing financial market settlement and interbank monetary transactions.”
