The presentation will cover testing undertaken by Norges Bank in its fourth project phase. In this phase we focused on rCBDC and relied on Hyperledger Besu to build our sandbox and further testing. We amongst others tested CBDC issuance and destruction, mass-payments, swapping and bridging. We also tested with the deployment of smart contracts for verified credentials, compound interests, and AML-procedures. Icebreaker was a successful happy-path project for cross-country payments through rCBDCs together with cooperating central banks and the BIS Innovation Hub of Stockholm.Disclaimer: Any choice in this phase is not indicative of our final CBDC-decision.
