Rabi Sankar- RBI Deputy Governor, dug profound into the explanations behind presenting a digital rupee and the conceivable systemic hazards postured by such a currency. It is significant that few nations, including the United States (US), the European Union (EU) and China, have been working earnestly towards giving their own Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) lately. In October 2020, the Bahamas dispatched the world’s first CBDC.

A digital currency allotted by the national bank would be unique in relation to other cryptographic forms of money, like, bitcoin, on the grounds that this money would give an individual or business an immediate claim on the central bank, as old as actual money.

Controllers all throughout the world are getting serious about digital coins, frightened at a quickly extending market that has bypassed sovereign national banks and could subvert their control of worldwide monetary systems.
