About the company
De Nederlandsche Bank is a central bank, supervisor and resolution authority of The Netherlands. One of its major tasks is to promote the smooth functioning of the payment system.
The use of cash as a means of payment diminishes. The shift towards more use of digital means of payment also leads to a shift from public money to private money. Central bank digital currencies could supplement cash to continue offering the public access to central bank money and convertibility at par with private money. In this presentation we focus on the role of central bank money, on cbdc policy goals and design choices, and on trade-offs to be made in the process.
