Central Bank News

A central bank is the main entity responsible for a region’s money system. Some of the world’s prominent central banks include the eurozone’s European Central Bank, the United States Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan, the Bank of England, the Reserve Bank of India and the People’s Bank of China. Central banks supervise a number of economic aspects regarding their respective regions, including money supply management.

A central bank digital currency, or CBDC, serves as a digital form of a region’s currency. A CBDC could possibly be called a central bank cryptocurrency, although because a CBCD is essentially a digital form of fiat currency, such assets are not decentralized and are not the same as the crypto assets native to the cryptocurrency industry.
