Accenture Picked to Build Sweden’s E-Krona Digital Currency Pilot
Sweden has picked Accenture to handle its e-krona digital currency pilot.
Social impact took center stage at this year's Hyperledger Global Forum, with perhaps less of an emphasis on banking consortia and trade finance blockchains.
Riksbank's e-krona pilot will run on distributed ledger tech, but the entire project will be operated as only a simulation through at least 2021.
The Digital Dollar Project's first white paper describes how a two-tiered system underpinning a tokenized dollar could modernize the U.S. financial system.
Former CFTC Chair Chris Giancarlo and LabCFTC head Dan Gorfine are forming the Digital Dollar Foundation, working with Accenture to determine how best to create a U.S. central bank digital currency.
Accenture plans to help TradeIX create new use cases beyond banking for buyers and sellers within trade finance after backing the Marco Polo tech partner.
