The Sweden’s central bank extends e-krona pilot to real world test environments

3 iunie 2021

Sweden’s central bank The Riksbank is to begin testing its e-krona central bank digital currency (CBDC) with external partners to assess how a digital krona would operate within a real world banking and payments infrastructure.

In the next phase of the e-krona pilot, the Riksbank will, together with Handelsbanken and TietoEVRY, test the technical solution for the e-krona. „The e-crown pilot thus goes from having only simulated participants to collaborating with external participants in the test environment,” according to the press release.

„Involving external actors as participants in the e-krona pilot’s test environment makes it possible for the Riksbank to evaluate the integration between the participants’ existing systems and the technical platform for the e-krona pilot,” the Swedish central bank says.  

„The Riksbank will, for example, test an integration of the payment flows developed during the pilot’s first year with the participants’ internal systems.”

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
