Nigeria’s apex bank is set to roll out her own CBDC on October 1, 2021.
What does this mean to the Open Blockchain privately issued cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others? Will there be surprises?
Although the rise of CBDC development is an obvious testament to the success of cryptocurrency, however, the differences are numerous.
Will CBDCs effectively compete and attempt to negate crypto?
While central bank digital currencies will have the speed and practicality of cryptocurrency, opposition to crypto is fundamentally why CBDC will exist and philosophically they are the antithesis of everything Bitcoin was created for—to escape the constraints of a broken financial system, empower individuals with financial autonomy, and to bring transparency and trust to finance.
