BIS Innovation Hub

Abstract icon The Nordic Centre in Stockholm, which is launched by BIS and four Nordic Central Banks, will work on projects related to central bank digital currencies (CBDC) and systems for payments data analysis. Tuesday, January 25th, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) Innovation Hub presented the work programme for 2022.
The Nordic Centre will work on two major projects during 2022. One project will investigate solutions that enable central bank digital currencies (CBDC) to be used offline. The second project will seek to demonstrate how using real time gross settlements (RTGS) and payments data, could be used to detect illegal activities, such as money laundering.

Danmarks Nationalbank is contributing to the work together with the central banks of Sweden, Norway and Iceland and will follow the developments of these projects closely.
