Central Bank Digital Currency, as defined by the Bank of International Investments, is a new form of digital money with a central bank liability which serves both as a medium of exchange and store of value. The goal is to retain all the benefits of cash and pushing beyond this by improving on multiple dimensions: Robustness, Privacy, Compliance, Accessibility, and Programmability to name a few. This will be a workshop jointly held by domain experts (Banks), and technology providers (IBM), providing an overview of Central Bank Digital Currency use-cases, and how (Hyperledger) enterprise Blockchain technologies address many of these requirements in on-going or completed experimentations on that front. In particular, in this talk we will show how Central Bank Digital Currency systems can move from conception (use-case description & requirements overview) to reality with deep-dives and hands-on sessions on Hyperledger Labs Token SDK and Weaver Interoperability Framework combined.
