The LinkedIn tech policy Fellowship on CBDC in Africa in 2021 is now accepting applications.
Evidently, the digital world needs money that reflects its qualities.
While private digital currencies such as bitcoin and Ether seem to be gaining popularity, central banks across the globe are proposing a countermeasure in the form of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).
E4E, or emerging technologies for emerging markets, is a tech policy advocacy organization and think tank that aims to follow a policy-to-action route that guarantees developing nations are not left behind in the adoption of new technologies.
The fellowship’s topic is CBDC in Africa, and the report will address the following questions:
- What will be the impact of CBDC on AcFTA?
- Will it be possible for public and private digital currencies to coexist?
- Or will it be a zero-sum game in the Battle of the Coins?
