Listen. Engage. Learn.


The CBDC Conference is the meeting point on Central Bank Digital Currency for delegates from central banks, retail banks, solution providers, academia and other areas.

The conference agenda will examine CBDC from three different perspectives:

+ The first perspective will cover the central banks’ view

When embarking on a CBDC project, a central bank must be clear on what it wants to achieve. It should ask itself a series of questions, for example:


  • What is the fundamental motivation to implement a CBDC? What problem is being solved? What does success look like?
  • What is the role of the central bank in a world with CBDC?
  • How will the CBDC function in the wider national and international payment landscape? Who should have access to CBDCs, and how?
  • What should be the scope of the CBDC: should it be a wholesale or retail CBDC?
  • What is the impact on the banking system? How will CBDC deliver financial stability?
  • What legal framework is necessary to implement a CBDC?
  • Which technical solutions are available? Which advantages offer the various solutions? How will these work for privacy and security issues?
  • Which monetary and financial policy options are available and should be considered?
  • And more


The agenda of the CBDC Conference will review these issues. The attendees will have the opportunity to hear first-hand from and engage in enlightening discussions with the experts active in this space.

Listen to the experts in this field. Engage in lively discussions. Learn first-hand from other professionals. Connect with representatives of the different stakeholders.


Multiple streams. Multiple formats.


Each and every individual delegate’s interests are different, but they all have in common the desire to learn, to share and to discuss.

The CBDC Conference caters to all these different interests by offering multiple streams running in parallel, allowing attendees to choose the session on their preferred topic. It does so by using different presentation and discussion formats, allowing attendees not only to listen, but to engage actively in in-depth discussions and learn.
