The Bank of England and HM Treasury have joined the central bank digital currency (CBDC) Engagement and Technology Forums. The Forums were created earlier this year alongside a task force exploring a digital pound sterling. CBDCs have emerged as a hot policy issue in the Fintech space as advocates foresee streamlined payments and transfer ecosystem while some worry about the implications of a digital currency in regards to monetary policy, commercial banking, and privacy concerns. The Engagement Forum consists of stakeholders from industry, civil society, and academia to gather strategic input on policy considerations and functional requirements pertaining to CBDC. The Forum is said to play an important role in helping the Bank and HM Treasury understand the practical challenges of designing, implementing and operating a CBDC. The Technology Forum met for the first time in late September, while the Engagement Forum will have its inaugural meeting later in the year. Agendas and Minutes from meetings are expected to be published regularly. The current members of the CBDC Forums are listed below: Anne Boden, CEO, Starling Bank Georges Elhedery, Co-CEO Global Banking & Markets, HSBC Arun Kohli, COO EMEA, Morgan Stanley Tracey McDermott, Group Head of Conduct & Financial Crime, Standard Chartered Bank Chris Rhodes, CFO, Nationwide Building Society Paul Thwaite, CEO Commercial Banking, NatWest Group Stephen Gilderdale, Chief Product Officer, SWIFT Imran Gulamhuseinwala, Trustee, Open Banking Charlotte Hogg, CEO, Visa Europe Matthew Hunt, Interim CEO, PayUK Jorn Lambert, Chief Digital Officer, Mastercard Paul Bances, Head of Global Market Development of Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, and Digital Currencies, PayPal Simon Coles, CTO, PayPoint Andrew Cregan, Head of Finance Policy, British Retail Consortium Martin McTague, National Policy Chair, Federation of Small Businesses Andrew Murphy, Executive Director for Operations, John Lewis Partnership Chris Wilford, Head of Financial Services Policy, CBI Natasha de Terán, Member of the Financial Services Consumer Panel Simon Gaysford, Founder & Director, Frontier Economics Reema Patel, Associate Director, Ada Lovelace Institute Polly Tolley, Director of Impact, Citizens Advice Scotland Judith Tyson, Research Fellow, Overseas Development Institute Christian Catalini, Chief Economist, Diem Association Jess Houlgrave, Chief of Staff, Checkout.com Arunan Tharmarajah, Head of European Banking, Wise Adam Jackson, Director, Innovate Finance Jana Mackintosh, Managing Director Payments & Innovation, UK Finance Ruth Wandhöfer, Chair, PSR Panel Bryan Zhang, Executive Director, Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, the University of Cambridge Judge Business School Rodney Garratt, Professor of Economics, University of California Santa Barbara Simon Gleeson, Financial Regulatory Group Lead, Clifford Chance Members of the CBDC Technology Forum Dominic Black, Money Collective Tech Lead, Monzo Lee Braine, MD Research & Engineering, Barclays Alan Ainsworth, Head of Policy, Open Banking Implementation Entity Max Malcolm, Head of Solution Architecture, Visa Sean Mullaney, Head of Product & Engineering for EMEA Payments, Stripe Patrick O’Donnell, VP Blockchain & Digital Assets, Mastercard James Whittle, Director of Standards and Architecture, PayUK Edwin Aoki, CTO, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Digital Currencies, PayPal Will Drewry, Principal Software Engineer, Google David MacKeith, Principal Technology Advisor, Amazon Web Services Lauren Del Giudice, Senior Architect, Idemia Vikram Kimyani, Cloud Architect, Oracle Paul Lucas, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Michael Adams, CEO, Quali-Sign Bejoy Das Gupta, Chief Economist, eCurrency Andrew Flatt, CTO, Archax Press Releases Data Privacy App TIKI Launches Public Crowdfunding Campaign to Give Users Stake in the Company Currently in beta, the company isadding product and engineeringresources leading up to a plannedpublic app launch in Q1 2022 TIKI, ...
