What is a CBDC?

In this video, Sabrina introduces the key concepts underpinning Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). She evaluates the two potential forms that CBDCs might take, ‘wholesale’ and ‘retail’ / ‘general purpose’.
Overview

Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) will likely take one of two forms. CBDCs will either be ‘Wholesale’, in which case they would be an evolution of current central bank settlement facilities. Or, they will be in the form of a ‘Retail’ CBDC, which would be available to retail customers.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand the potential of blockchain in the context of a wholesale CBDC

  • Explore the two types of CBDCs that are being considered

  • Assess the differences between a retail/general purpose CBDC and a wholesale CBDC
