CBDC technology considerations

Given the rapid pace of technological experimentation and development, and the multitude of variables at play, it can be challenging to assess the best technology choices for a new central bank digital currency (CBDC). This white paper is intended to guide central banks and other decision-makers through major technology considerations for CBDC.

It is divided into three parts: 1) discussion of CBDC technical design considerations given various policy goals, 2) an evaluation of the pros and cons, or trade-offs, of the use of distributed ledger technology in CBDC infrastructure, and 3) an overview of important cybersecurity risks and considerations for any CBDC.
