Many central banks around the world are continuing to experiment and research central bank digital currencies (CBDC) with great interest. Accenture has been participating and supporting the debate for many years and we would like to invite you to a webinar with our global CBDC experts. We will introduce you to CBDC, global trends, use cases and then move on to pilot implementations where we will share our experience from selected projects.

During the webinar we will guide you through three highly interesting projects that Accenture has been involved in covering CBDC from a retail, wholesale, and cross-border perspective. We will more specifically talk about the following projects where we have been involved:
• Riksbanken’s e-krona pilot in Sweden
• South African Reserve Bank’s Project Khokha
• Banque de France CBDC experimentation
