The ongoing digitalisation of our economy is leading to far-reaching changes in many areas of our lives. Payments are no exception: innovative forms of private digital money are emerging in response to changing needs, which are transforming how we pay and the payment landscape more broadly.
These developments touch at the core of central banks’ mandates as issuers of sovereign money. Central banks and regulators around the world are scratching their heads about how they can regulate private stablecoins to minimize potential systemic risks. While new regulations on cryptocurrencies and digital assets may come as a package including cryptos, tokens or NFTs, stablecoins are the real trigger for the regulatory push — and in 2022 we will see the first rules.
Kinfos Events are proud to launch Europe’s first dedicated banking summit on “CBDC & NexGen Digital Currencies”. This unique show will be jointly represented by 25+ leading speakers and it aims to gather 150+ qualified attendees (mostly from local and regional banks, regulators, standard bodies, selected FinTechs) who are looking to stay ahead of the curve.
Here it aims to address all the significant developments, new forms of digital currencies or “digital cash” that have been in the news lately, including central bank digital currencies, or CBDCs. If we need digital currencies of these new kinds, who should issue them, and how should they be designed? What are the implications of digital currencies for the monetary system? These are weighty issues that are much on the minds of central bankers, scholars and the general public.
We are excited to welcome you all for joining the unique show.
A very warm welcome!
