80% of Central Banks are interested in launching CBDC

More than 80% of central banks are considering launching their own digital currency. Thailand, Hong Kong, and Jamaica are the most actively developing CBDCs.

PwC Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Specialist Haydn Jones separates the retail and wholesale digital currencies of the Central Bank. Retail ones are issued for use by the general public, while wholesale ones are for use by financial institutions.

Retailers have reached a higher level of readiness for a full-fledged launch, in contrast to wholesalers.
