ECB launches digital euro project
The European Central Bank has approved the launch of a multi-year project that will create a digital version of the euro. The currency could be launched as early as March 2022. "In any event, a digital euro would complement cash, not replace it," said ECB member Fabio Panetta. China, Japan and the UK are other countries that have begun exploring the possibility of a central bank digital currency.
