Central Bank Digital Currency

A digital form of a country's official currency, issued and regulated by the central bank. Unlike decentralized cryptocurrencies, Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) are centralized and backed by the government, aiming to combine the efficiency of digital payments with the stability of traditional fiat currencies. CBDCs are designed to benefit the general public or financial institutions by improving financial inclusion, reducing transaction costs, and enhancing payment system efficiency.
