The Future of Money - does the UK need a Digital Pound?
The emergence of digital currencies has been driven by a combination of factors: frontier technologies and their use in payments innovation, increasingly global networks and communities, and a growing recognition that transition to a digital economy will require new forms of digital money.

The Digital Pound Foundation has recently been launched as an independent, non-profit organisation to work with a variety of stakeholders and participants towards the implementation of a well-designed Digital Pound. Recognising that both public and private sector have a role to play in the new digital money landscape, the Foundation's remit will also include advocacy for an inclusive, well-regulated, secure and transparent ecosystem that encompasses both CBDC and privately-issued forms of digital money.

In this special launch event, we will formally introduce the Foundation and some of its members, look at why Britain might need a digital pound and examine some of the key benefits and practical examples of how it could be used.
