Most central banks around the world are looking at introducing a digital currency or a CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency), including the UK’s Bank of England.

Indeed, China has already started experimenting with the digital yuan piloted in more than 20 areas.

So, how will CBDCs change how we bank? Will we still need commercial banks? Will a digital currency help central banks control inflation?

These questions and more will be answered by Jeremy Leake, Senior Advisor at the Bank of England, and Ganesh Viswanath Natraj, of the Gillmore Centre for Financial Technology at Warwick Business School.

Join your host Natasha de Teran, a former financial journalist and author of The Pay Off: How Changing the Way We Pay Changes Everything, as they explore the world of digital currencies.
