England Proposes to Create Central Bank Digital Currency

The boom of cryptocurrencies has led various nations to reconsider their diabolical approach towards adopting decentralized finance. There are now trials by multiple nations to launch their respective currencies, such as China is all caught up with inaugurating their digital Yuan. Now England has proposed the will to create their own cryptocurrency, which would allegedly be named Britcoin. The bank of England has recently announced its plans to test the possibility of a national digital currency. For doing so, a task force has been established that will oversee the design, technical testing, and building of the cryptocurrency under close supervision.

It is Still an Idea, not a Final Decision

The charter that will oversee the testing and development of the cryptocurrency will also be checking a bunch of other things, such as if the interest of the state and the goals that it has set around the development of a cryptocurrency are met or not? Does it help in battling inflation and bringing stability to the already present and bustling financial establishment and processes of great Britain, and if the currency could put Britain out on the map for critical thinking that revolves around bringing economic revolution and such? There is no final decision regarding if the government is willing to go through with the rolling out of this currency out there or not, but even if it does, the traditional financial methods will not be replaced at all, and everything will stay on as it was before the presence of this currency.

The final decision is yet to come if the currency will be passed and taken on as the ultimate digital currency of Great Britain or not; after the results from the current testing of the currency comes along, the government will be addressing the stakeholders, currency enthusiasts and the general public related to the risks and benefits of the digital currency that is if it ever goes live. The current fiat elements such as cash, forex exchanges, and the stock market will not be intermingled or completely replaced with this currency at all because one way or the other, the cash remains essential to millions of people out there and can’t be put out of the circulation.
