菲律宾央行已经成立了一个工作组,探索建立中央银行数字货币(CBDC)

2020-7-30 11:44

 

在今天的虚拟会议上,菲律宾中央银行行长Benjamin E. Diokno表示,该银行已经成立了一个工作组,探索建立中央银行数字货币(CBDC)。


Diokno说:“我们最近刚刚成立了一个技术工作组,研究发行中央银行数字货币(CBDC)的可行性和政策含义。”他说:“在做出任何决定之前,我们必须首先调查小组的调查结果。我期待EWG下个月提交他们的报告。”


他是在回答一个关于CBDC和加密货币的问题。


这位央行行长继续表示:“在加密货币方面,我们不认为它会严重影响目前对实物货币的需求。对我们来说,加密货币一直都超越了资产本身,而更多地依赖于支撑资产的区块链技术。区块链通过提供一种高效、安全、稳健的支付方式,在革命性的金融服务交付方面继续引起人们的兴趣。”


在今天的另一次讲话中,行长强调了数字支付日益增加的重要性,特别是在COVID-19疫情中。今年前五个月,该国两个全国性支付网络PESONet和InstaPay的数字支付数量增长了70%,价值增长了42%。他提出了一个目标,即到2023年或更早的时候,数字化交易的价值和数量将达到全球的一半。


过去两周,央行参与了区块链实验,授权通过银联开发的区块链驱动应用销售零售政府债券。


与此同时,cbdc继续受到世界各国的关注。在最近的一次网络研讨会上,新加坡中央银行的一位高管评论说,唯一缺少的是一个主要中央银行发布CBDC的决定。上周,日本成立了CBDC工作小组,据报道,日本鼓励下一届七国集团(G7)世界强国会议增加这一议题。然而,最接近发布CBDC的大国中国,并不是G7的成员。

 

In a virtual conference today, the Governor of Philippines’ central bank, Benjamin E. Diokno, stated that the Bank has a working group exploring a central bank digital currency (CBDC).

“We just recently formed a technical working group to study the feasibility and policy implications of issuing a central bank digital currency or CBDC,” said Diokno. “We have to first look into the findings of the group before making any decision in this regard. I expect the EWG to submit their report next month.”

He was responding to a question about both CBDC and cryptocurrencies.

The Governor continued: “On cryptocurrencies, we do not see it significantly affecting the present demand for physical currencies. And cryptocurrency for us has always been beyond the asset itself, but more on the blockchain technology that underpins it. Blockchain continues to elicit interest around revolutionizing the delivery of financial services by providing an efficient, secure and robust means of payment.”

In another speech today, the Governor highlighted the increasing importance of digital payments, particularly with COVID-19. In the first five months of the year, digital payments on the country’s two national payment networks, PESONet and InstaPay, rose by 70% in volume and 42% in value. He outlined a goal of digital achieving half of transactions in value and volume by 2023 or sooner.

In the last two weeks, the central bank was involved in a blockchain experiment by authorizing the sale of retail government bonds through a blockchain powered app developed by UnionBank.

Meanwhile, CBDCs are continuing to attract attention around the world. In a recent webinar, an executive from Singapore’s central bank commented that the only thing missing is a major central bank’s decision to issue a CBDC. Last week, Japan set up a CBDC working group and reportedly encouraged the topic to be added to the next G7 meeting of world powers. However, China, which is the major power that is closest to issuing a CBDC, is not a member of the G7.
