ECB to survey Europeans about digital euro
Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank, has announced a public opinion survey on issuing the digital euro.
The ECB is considering the possibility of using digital currency, including for payments and transfers between citizens of the European Union. People can take a survey on the Central bank’s website.
“We’ve just launched a public consultation so that consumers and Europeans can actually express their preference and tell us whether they would be happy to use a digital euro just in the way they use a euro coin or a euro banknote knowing that it is central bank money that is available and that they can rely upon,” Lagarde said in the video posted on the ECB’s Twitter account.
