Digital currencies: Navigating the new reality

May 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The world of digital currencies is upon us…

New types of private money have exploded on the scene in recent years – from cryptocurrencies to stablecoins and beyond – but national and global institutions are responding fast. Over 110 countries around the world are now exploring digital currencies, according to the Atlantic Council, with China expanding its pilot to 250+ million people in 2023. A quarter of central banks expect to introduce a CBDC within the next 1-2 years according to a recent survey by the OMFIF Digital Monetary Institute.

Firms need to act quickly to make sure they’re ready to navigate a world abundant with currencies of all forms and flavours. Yet many questions remain:

  • Can digital currencies deliver real-world benefits such as increase financial inclusion?
  • How important will it be for business and consumers to have continued access to central bank money?
  • How will the industry ensure global interoperability between digital currencies, and with existing payment systems, without impacting commercial banking i.e. credit supply?
  • How should CBDC’s be designed to maximise ease of use, acceptance at the point of sale and transferability across multiple payment platforms?
  • Will money really be programmable?
  • What financial/operational challenges need to be overcome when transacting with digital currencies? (e.g. FX/Liquidity)
  • What solutions are available? And what progress has been made?
  • How might future technological innovations affect design and policy choices related to CBDCs?

Join us as we bring together global players, thought leaders and industry practitioners to explore the new reality of digital currencies.

Still not receiving your auto-login link?

Instead of using passwords, we e-mail you a link to log in to the site. This allows us to automatically verify you and apply member benefits based on your e-mail domain name.

Please click the button below which relates to the issue you’re having.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
