Digital Currencies Series

Distributed ledger technology and the blockchain are revolutionising financial services. New ways to securely transfer and verify data are fundamentally changing the way participants in financial services operate.

Central banks see the potential to control inflation by issuing their own digital currencies, which one day could replace existing physical fiat money.

Commercial banks – some collaborating, others going alone – are developing their own variations of the blockchain to increase efficiency right across business. The use cases with the most obvious potential include syndicated loans, trade finance and know-your-customer compliance.

Innovative hedge funds use cryptographic tokens to quantify their confidence models.

In a series of content pieces for leading law firm Baker McKenzie, Euromoney Institutional Investor Thought Leadership puts the spotlight on digital currencies and distributed ledger technology.

Published over a period of five months, the programme includes articles, an infographic explaining different currency types, Q&As with leading fintech and innovation experts at central banks and financial institutions, video content and an animation.
