Over 60% of central banks are actively experimenting on CBDCs today. Successful domestic CBDC projects have naturally progressed towards cross-border payments, where CBDCs offer significant potential cost and time savings through direct transactions without the need for intermediaries.
As we reach a critical mass of cross-border CBDC projects, designing for interoperability becomes ever more important. How do we design for interoperability, and what are the different perspectives to consider?
Will the emergence of new connectivity models such as multi-CBDC shared platforms, being explored in projects like Project Dunbar, change the way we think about standards and interoperability?
Importantly, how do we build towards a future where international payments are as seamless and efficient as our domestic payments today?
