Why central banks are exploring CBDCs
Xiaochen Zhang, global head of innovation and go-to-market at AWS, and Erica Salinas, principal technical leader – Web3 at Amazon, join Ellie Duncan on the podcast to explain what has spurred central banks to explore central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and why some central banks have taken the lead. They also address some of the biggest global trends, such as digital assets and the use of blockchain beyond CBDCs, and how public sector FIs are innovating to keep up with these disruptive forces. Finally, Xiaochen and Erica talk about the opportunities for women and girls to make their mark in this area of finance.
