Who else can be considered more credible than the head of the European Central Bank, who confirmed at a recent press conference the importance of digital currencies.
According to the daily Trustnodes, which reproduced the press conference, Christine Lagarde should have stated the following “We think that it’s a duty of us to actually have available digital currencies that would operate to the benefit of consumers,”.
But that was not all, Christine also revealed that at least 80 central banks around the world are currently looking at these digital currencies, which means an extremely increasing interest in the CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency).
Christine Lagarde also revealed that in the consultation, most consumers replied as follows "we want our privacy to be protected, but we don't want anonymity because they understand the risk of anonymity."
Despite everything, when we compare the situation in Europe, where the ECB is still exploring the possibilities of the CBDC, such as China, for example, is far ahead. Let us just recall the recent information that there are already more than 3,000 ATMs in Beijing, the capital of China, that support the selection of digital yuan.
