With the introduction of the digital euro the European Commission and the ECB face what is probably the most significant challenge facing the eurozone since its inception. Which primary characteristics must a digital euro possess to guarantee being a serious alternative to physical money in the future?
Deniz Baytemur and Derico Frade as members of the Public Digital Euro Working Groups present their groups recommendations for a digital euro compartmentalized by design dimensions, payment relevant aspects and legal considerations after four months and in-depth analysis of relevant literature. The group’s findings have culminated in the paper “Ahead of the digital euro: Public Digital Euro Working Group Recommendations” and is particularly positioned at central banks involved in developing a central bank digital currency.

The paper “Ahead of the digital euro: Public Digital Euro Working Group Recommendations” does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Digital Euro Association but that of the Working Group participants.
