Sophisticated modeling and simulation

One of the major roadblocks for many central banks is the uncertainty surrounding the implications of introducing a digital currency. Sophisticated and flexible modeling and simulation is required to ensure that the stability of the financial system is maintained. G+D has partnered with FNA (Financial Network Analytics) to provide unrivaled expertise in advanced analytics, modeling, and simulation technology.

Simulating the CBDC impact


Create a digital replica of the existing payment system and network


Evaluate alternative configurations to balance and determine risks and adoption


Build a common understanding across stakeholders


With a clear and realistic understanding of CBDC deployment, implementation can safely begin

By modelling the daily behavior of consumers and merchants, FNA simulates the adoption of a CBDC, the features of the economy, and other competing payment instruments. This type of (agent-based) modelling enables flexible and rich scenario analysis of how the rollout of a CBDC would affect the payment system and financial stability.

Benefits of CBDC Simulation

  • Test multiple scenarios and develop optimum CBDC configurations
  • Understand and measure potential risks across the entire financial system
  • Simulate stresses to the new and existing payment systems
  • Base simulations on historical data, specific research, synthetic data, and more, to provide the most valuable insights and predict payment behaviours
  • Provide clarity to all participants in payment system as to how a CBDC will affect their current payment processing

Modeling the impact of CBDC

Central-bank-backed digital currencies are a whole new ballgame. They offer many benefits, yet their impact on the economy and the financial system is hard to predict.
