Bank of Canada Says CBDCs Have Inherent Risks in New Study

Bank of Canada Says CBDCs Have Inherent Risks in New Study”

Despite solid progress on the pilot program, the Bank of Korea maintains that it has no now confirmed plans to launch a CBDC once it completes. "These risks arise from how balances are aggregated and stored, how CBDC is used for transactions, and how various solutions such as e-wallets, crypto exchanges and banks compete to attract users".

South Korea will join a handful of other countries like Sweden, China and the U.K.to set the grounds for legitimate digital currency option.

The Bank of Canada recently delivered a report on the risks and benefits of a central bank digital currency.

The trials have expanded to Beijing, the Yangtze River Delta region, the provinces of Tianjin, Hebei and Guangdong, and the cities of Hong Kong and Macau, the country's Commerce Ministry said in August, and they could roll out to central and western China in the future.

In addition to the immediate need for a CBDC, BOK made a decision to review the technical and legal requirements for issuing and operating a CBDC system in order to preempt negative blowback from operators of existing payment environments in South Korea.

With phase one of its central bank digital currency (CBDC) experiment complete, the Bank of Korea (BOK) is looking forward to testing the token distribution system in 2021.

The Bank of Canada's report recorded risks in multiple areas, including asset storage. As a result, more assets storage locations would be plausible when it comes to traditional finance.

Risks also emerge from the platforms potentially providing solutions around CBDCs.

The Bank of Korea (BOK) today announced that it finished its design and foundational work to establish a CBDC testnet.

The Bank of Canada has released a report on the potential risks and rewards of issuing a national central bank digital currency (CBDC). "To guarantee that the CBDC is a sheltered and successful technique for payment, the bank must ponder how it will be collected and utilized, and the outer variables it will have".
