The digital euro is currently a hot topic. Following the announcement of Libra and a digital blockchain-based yuan by the Chinese central bank, interest in digital euro on a blockchain continues to gain traction. Most global central banks across the world are currently analyzing the effects of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) and the European Central Bank (ECB), while not having announced the introduction of a digital euro in the foreseeable future, continues to follow the developments closely and it is possible in the near future to issue blockchain backed digital euro.
What are the advantages of a blockchain-based digital euro? How will it streamline the opportunities for marketing, financial, mobility, logistics based companies and the purchase and sale of securities and assets? These are the topics we will be analyzing closely at this meetup.
