COVID-19 and the rise of contactless payments have prompted many central banks to consider wholesale CBDC as a way of lowering the cost of international payments settlement. Wholesale CBDC, as part of an open source real-time payments system design, has the potential to support financial innovation by offering a wider spectrum of payment capabilities and increased competition across platforms.
