Digital Monetary Symposium 2021


Building on OMFIF’s status as an independent think tank for central banks, the Digital Monetary Institute brought together 2,000+ policy-makers, technology experts and investors on 28-29 April 2021 to push the boundaries of the discussion on practical and theoretical aspects of digital currencies and the future of capital markets.


SICPA took part to a panel discussion about “The payments revolution from the consumers perspective” on the first day.
The payments revolution is built on the need to promote financial inclusion among consumers, merchants and sectors that lack access to financial services. However, this shift will stall unless prerequisites of digitalisation and consumer adoption is ensured. This panel looked at the payment service providers and CBDC landscape, addressing how best to combat financial exclusion and meet consumer needs. It addressed issues surrounding digital identity, data privacy, security, and resiliency and explore how the public and private sector can move beyond walled garden phenomena, solving interoperability and fungibility challenges.
