Can you recall the last time you paid digitally? Barter trade, stones, shells, metal coins, banknotes, credit cards… The mode of trade has persistently evolved throughout history. Whether you prefer online payments or still find joy in the rhythm of a money counter, we are shifting towards a cashless society. Are you aware of your “intangible” wealth? Do you know what Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) is?
This seminar brings together four PolyU alumni, who are senior executives and industry professionals, to shed light on the development of CBDC, e-HKD, e-CNY, digital wallets, and more. By discussing how digital currencies transform our daily experiences and their impact on the financial sector and beyond, we are going to get a head start in this cashless era.
