Global payment network Roxe has recruited Andreas Jobst, an International Monetary Fund (IMF) Senior Economist. As Roxe’s chief currency economist, Jobst will be tasked with helping to scale Roxe’s blockchain-based central bank digital currency (CBDC) project. The CBDC Plus Program appears to be a wholesale CBDC designed for cross-border interoperability among financial institutions.
On October 4 I’ll be providing an overview of international work on retail CBDC and evolving thinking on motivations, system design and safeguards at The CBDC Conference. You can register for this comprehensive three-day (October 4-6) event here: https://www.cbdc-conference.com/index.php
