In October 2023, the European Central Bank (ECB) will decide whether to launch a preparation phase to develop and test a Digital Euro. That makes the ECB part of a larger, global trend: around the world, more than 100 countries are already exploring a central bank digital currency (CBDC).

In our G+D Spotlight Podcast, we talk to Tanja Hessdörfer, Head of Sales and Business Development CBDC at G+D. As G+D is already piloting CBDC in several countries, she has the answers on the most urgent questions: what’s in it for the end consumer? Will a CBDC replace cash? Do I need online access? And what about data privacy?
