加纳银行正在开展CBDC试点工作

2021-6-6 18:18


周一,加纳银行行长Ernest Addison博士告诉媒体,加纳在中央银行数字货币(CBDC)方面的工作非常先进。


Addison说:“加纳银行是首批宣布我们正在研究数字货币并研究e-Cedi概念的非洲央行之一。”“我们在这方面相当先进。”


他解释说,项目需要分阶段进行,并在决定启动前概述了三个阶段。这三个阶段分别是设计阶段、实施阶段和试验阶段。设计阶段是超前的,目前的重点是实施阶段。


他说:“在实施阶段结束后,我们会有一个试验阶段,在这个阶段,少数人将能够在移动应用程序和其他正在运行的支付应用程序上使用电子的Cedi。”


“然后,通过试点,我们将能够确定这是否可行,以及需要对哪些方面进行调整以使其有效工作。”


总督说,不久将公布更多的细节。


其他正在探索CBDC的非洲国家包括摩洛哥、南非、埃及(截至2018年),可能还有肯尼亚,尽管行长称该银行处于全球央行探索的“边缘”。

On Monday, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Ernest Addison, told the press that Ghana’s work on a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is quite advanced.

“The Bank of Ghana was one of the first African central banks to declare that we were working on a digital currency and looking at the concept of an e-Cedi,” said Addison. “We are quite advanced in that process.”

He explained that there’s a need to approach the project in phases and outlined three stages prior to deciding to launch. These are a design phase, an implementation stage and a pilot phase. The design stage is advanced, and the current focus is on the implementation phase.

“After the implementation phase, we will have a pilot phase where a few people would be able to use it, use the electronic Cedi on the mobile applications and other payment applications that are currently running,” he said.

“And then from that pilot we will be able to determine if this is feasible and what sort of things need to be tweaked in order to make it work effectively.”

The Governor stated that it would publish more details soon.

Other African states that are exploring CBDC include MoroccoSouth Africa, Egypt (as of 2018), and possibly Kenya, although the Governor described the bank as ‘on the fringes’ of the exploration by global central banks.
