SFF: GREEN SHOOTS SERIES

Synopsis

We are at the turning point of digital currency adoption. What started as research experiments by central banks are now making its way into ‘live’ adoption and usage of digital currencies in the industry. These ‘live’ commercial projects are in turn driving the next wave of CBDC projects, including the use of multi-CBDCs for international settlements.

In part 1 of this Digital Currency Series by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) Innovation Hub in Singapore, we will discuss:

Digital currency adoption and the road to CBDCs
Bringing together alumni from Project Ubin leading the charge on implementing live digital currency projects, the panel will share their journey to production, discuss the role of CBDCs, and explore the vision of a world transacting seamlessly and digitally with CBDCs.

Panel Discussion moderated by Wee Kee Toh, Advisor, BIS Innovation Hub Singapore
Laura Loh, Director, Blockchain @ Temasek
- Naveen Mallela, Global Head of Coin Systems, Onyx by J.P. Morgan
- Vinay Mohan, Chief Operating Officer, NZIA

CBDCs: public good for universal financial inclusion
CBDCs present an opportunity for us to realise the vision of universal financial inclusion, where every person can transact digitally with anyone else in the world. This fireside chat will deep-dive into how digital currencies can drive broader adoption of inclusive domestic and cross-border payments, and the roles of public and private institutions in driving this vision forward.

Fireside Chat moderated by Andrew McCormack, Centre Head, BIS Innovation Hub Singapore
- Paula Hunter,  Executive Director, Mojaloop Foundation
- Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)
