PresentationDigital Fiat Currency, the alternative to physical fiat currency
Many nations are discussing the future of cash. Central Banks are studying their role in the digital evolution which will allow them to continue to regulate and fulfill their fiscal responsibilities. Banknotes are a sovereign legal tender issued solely by the Central Bank. Their digital equivalent must also follow the currency laws of the nation.
