    Central Banks and Blockchain: Risks and Rewards

    Geneva & Zurich

    A number of central banks are currently considering the use of blockchains, or distributed ledger technology (DLT), for the issuance of central bank money (Central Bank Digital Currency, CBDC).

    In the most extreme scenario currently under consideration, companies and individuals would be granted direct access to the accounts of central banks, thus bypassing commercial banks. However, under less disruptive scenarios, the use of DLT by central banks will likely change the financial system as we know it.

    Dr. Hans Kuhn will provide an overview of the current state of play, conditions for and obstacles to the use of DLT by central banks and potential ramifications for monetary policy, financial stability and the banking system.
