Head of the Center for Breakthrough Technologies Andrey Varnavskiy To Speak at Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Moscow 2021
Today, central banks around the world are already introducing pilot projects to launch their own digital currencies or explore such possibility. One of the leaders in this industry is China, where work has been underway since 2014 on Digital Currency Electronic Payment, which is often referred to as the digital yuan because it is backed by the Chinese currency.
Why do we need central bank digital currencies (CBDC)? How will they affect the traditional economic system? On September 29, Andrey Varnavskiy, Head of the Center for Breakthrough Technologies at the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation will answer these questions at Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference Moscow 2021.
