On Wednesday, August 16 Javelin’s James Wester and Joel Hugentobler will discuss one of the most important topics in financial services: Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
CBDCs are a government-backed cryptocurrency with the promise of increased financial inclusion, efficiency, and transparency.
But for all those purported benefits, CBDCs have drawn considerable concern and criticism. Will CBDCs really give more consumers access to digital payments? Or will they be a tool for surveillance?
According to Joel, "The digital asset genie is out of the bottle." Join this webinar to explore CBDCs, discuss the global state of digital currencies, and consider the potential benefits and harms of government-issued digital money.
