Learn more about three areas of our ongoing work on digital currencies and financial technology (Fintech).
Understanding the benefits and risks of digital currencies and electronic payments is important. That’s because they could have an impact on our core central bank functions.
For the past few years, we have researched private and central bank digital currencies. More recently, we’ve been studying other uses of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Collaboration on the regulatory agenda
Managing the benefits and risks of financial technology through a global regulatory framework is essential.
The Bank of Canada contributes to this agenda through the Financial Stability Board, the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures, and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
