This course is designed to help you understand how and why governments are looking to introduce new ways to enable payments to be made - Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) - which will impact the global economy and society.
Alongside CBDCs, we are seeing digital currencies - stablecoins - being launched by companies which allow business owners and managers to reduce risk in their companies, make payments more efficient and help make society more inclusive. There has been considerable press coverage about cryptocurrencies and the technology that supports them - blockchain.
This course will give you an overview of different types of blockchain. It will give insight as to why governments and companies are looking to encourage the use of digital payments which will not have to rely on the current banking systems and procedures.
As our lives become ever more digitalised we need new more relevant and efficient methods of transferring value/making payments that can enable transactions on a face-to-face basis as well as online digitally or indeed on the rapidly growing metaverse.
