Due to the Corona crisis, the organizers have already canceled a large number of meetings and symposia. As a result, the Frankfurt School’s Blockchain Center is trying to organize the meeting in a virtual space.
The digital euro in a digital discussion
Due to the mounting ban, events like the Blockchain Week Summit 2020 cannot take place in Paris. The organizers of the “Digital Euro for Smart Contracts in Industry” round table are therefore planning a digital meeting on March 31 at 9:00 am. Anyone interested can participate free of charge in the conferences of the speakers announced. Basically, these are questions and answers about the idea of the e-euro.
On the Website the event reads: “WHY ARE WE TALKING ONLINE? CORONA. Blockchain and community building. This is our mission. The Corona virus has not made our job easier, but we will now put our business online to help to educate and disseminate blockchain issues. ”
What are the economic effects of the digital euro
Unlike unregulated cryptocurrencies, a regulated digital euro could be extremely beneficial for the economy. Roundtable participants will learn more from Professor Sandner, but also from Thomas Nägele of NÄGELE Attorneys and Maximilian Forster of Cash-on-Ledger. Benjamin Duve from Commerzbank and Dr. Martin Diehl from the Deutsche Bundesbank.
Professor Philipp Sandner of the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center explains in a Article March 25: “Are there solutions ready for the market for a digital euro already? Most of the world’s central banks are currently analyzing the effects of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). However, no central bank has yet issued such a digital central bank currency. China could therefore be the first country, but small countries like the Marshall Islands, the Bahamas or Cambodia are also in the starting blocks. Are these central bank digital currencies issued on blockchain systems? In most of the cases mentioned, yes. “
