Implications of e-krona project on different aspects of Swedish monetary and banking system

Superb research by team of Riksbank economists.

The Riksbank is investigating the possibility and consequences of introducing a Swedish central bank digital currency, a so-called e-krona. The latest issue of our journal Economic Review is a special theme issue discussing the e-krona from different perspectives. What is the role of the central bank in the payments market? What might the demand for an e-krona be? What consequences will this have for the banks? How will rate-setting be affected, and what further effects might the e-krona have for monetary policy and economic developments in the long run?

It includes following articles:

  • Why did the Riksbank receive a banknote monopoly? 
  • What is money and what type of money would an e-krona be? 
  • Implications of an e-krona for the Riksbank’s framework for implementing monetary policy
  • The e-krona and the macroeconomy
  • How many e-kronas are needed for payments?
  • When a central bank digital currency meets private money: effects of an e-krona on banks

Must read for those interested in digital money and even money in general…
