About this event
UNSW Law & Justice invites you to join this dynamic panel discussion on the topic of Central bank digital currency: a global game changer?
Central bank digital currency (CBDC) is a digital version of fiat currency. With the rise of cryptocurrencies, declining use of cash, and emergence of stablecoins, economies such as Australia, EU, US and China are exploring CBDCs and the possibility of CBDCs going global.
With the introduction of CBDCs, currency competition is likely to be fierce between public money and private money, giving rise to a new financial ecosystem that will generate huge volumes of data that is considered ‘King’ in the digital age. CBDCs will also profoundly affects business models – from finance and e-commerce, to data, technology and security.
As we look ahead to the future, what are the game changing impacts of CBDCs? How do the benefits and opportunities weigh up against the challenges and risks?
Join the conversation with leading experts in law and business, who will discuss the structure of CBDCs in the financial system and what CBDCs will mean for local and international businesses.
