List Of Countries Exploring Digital Currencies (CBDC) And Status.

Here are list of Countries exploring CBDCs and their status. This page will be updated regularly for new information about digital currency.
To date, countries that have issued their own cryptocurrencies by countries of origin include Ecuador, China, Senegal, Singapore, Tunisia, though these countries will not be standing alone for long with Estonia, Japan, Palestine, Russia and Sweden looking to launch their own national digital currency. Some of these countries are likely to take it a step further and replace paper currencies altogether with China being one nation that is looking to take one step beyond a virtual (digital Yuan) and paper version.
In this article, I’ll highlight countries, date, currency and status, whether pilot, cancelled, research and launched.
Pilot means about to launch, Research means still digging more insight about CBDC, Launched means it has been explored and of course, you know what Cancelled means.
Now let dive into the primary reason of this article.
