The Atlantic Council’s Geoeconomics Center previously uncovered a new central bank digital currency tracker starring an interactive database.
According to Bitcoin.com, there were only 35 countries in the world set to start up their very own central bank-backed CBDC in May 2020, and 5 countries have completely inaugurated their digital currencies.
According to its website, the Geoeconomics Center described itself as “a nonpartisan organization that galvanizes US leadership and engagement in the world, in partnership with allies and partners, to shape solutions to global challenges.”
A new edition of the CBDC tracker, launched in April 2020, had been used by the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of International Settlements, the center said.
These 81 countries represent over 90 percent of the global Gross Domestic Product.
According to the center, out of the countries with the four biggest central banks in the world(the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of England), only the United States has no intention of formulating a state-backed digital currency anytime soon.
