European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said today that the bank will soon publish a report on a European digital currency.
After releasing the report, the European Central Bank will consult the public.
Lagarde has consistently pushed the bank to prioritize research into a CBDC.
The long-awaited results of the European Central Bank’s research into a digital euro will soon be released “in the coming weeks,” ECB President Christine Lagarde said today.
But that won’t be the final word. The findings, which detail the advantages and disadvantages of creating a central bank digital currency (CBDC) for retail use across Europe, will be presented to the public for feedback.
