Policy in practice: building “Britcoin”

In this episode of policy in practice, David Gauke is joined by Sapheen Meran, legal technology and innovation manager, and Gavin Haran, head of policy for asset management to look at the UK plans for introducing a central bank digital currency (CBDC).

Following the launch of the UK Government’s consultation on this new form of money, the team discuss what are CBDCs or “Britcoin”, how the technology behind it would work, what are the policy objectives and implications for banks and end users.
