Crypto Industry News:
Speaking at an online meeting of the Franco-German Parliamentary Assembly, Lagarde said the bank was analyzing the "benefits, risks and operational challenges" of the European Central Bank's Digital Currency (CBDC), but that fiat currency is likely to continue to play a role in this digital future:
"The digital euro could be a complement to, not a substitute for cash. This could be an alternative to private digital currencies and ensure that sovereign money remains at the center of European payment systems."
On September 10, the ECB president said the Eurosystem had yet to decide whether to introduce the digital euro, but said a task force set up to investigate the potential impact of CBDC on Europe would be announced "in the coming weeks".
Lagarde has long supported the central bank in developing the digital euro to meet the steps towards digitization. In September last year, when she was the head of the International Monetary Fund, the ECB president announced that she would focus on ensuring that the EU institutions adapt to the changing financial environment through openness to cryptocurrencies.
