Central Bank Digital Currencies – The Future of Money


Following the success of publishing “The Executive Guide to Blockchain” earlier this year, the authors – Haydn Jones and Dr. Maria Grazia Vigliotti – are delighted to announce their forthcoming webinar exploring Central Bank Digital Currencies to be held on June 25th at 6:30 pm.

Central bank digital currencies could herald the dawn of a new type of money. They are unique in that they expand on the principles of central bank money, but leverage the recent developments in digital currencies, and importantly are state-backed.

Both Haydn and Maria will be drawing on their collective experience of working in cybersecurity, central banking, and financial services.

As part of the webinar, the authors will also be joined by Dave Birch. Dave is an author, advisor, and commentator on digital financial services.

He is an internationally-recognized thought leader in digital identity and digital money and was named one of the global top 15 favorite sources of business information by Wired magazine. Once again, Joe Lynam will also be hosting.

Joe is an award-winning broadcaster who presents on the BBC World Service in the United Kingdom.

For reference, the book is available via www.theexecutiveguidetoblockchain.com and has been commended for its non-technical language, and clarity.
