ECB appoints 30 members for digital euro advisory group, Tether to be regulated by SEC and delayed ETF
European Central Bank appoints 30 members to digital euro advisory group
The European Central Bank (ECB) has appointed 30 members to its new “Digital Euro Market Advisory Group.”
The members will advise the Eurosystem on designing and distributing a potential digital euro, a central bank digital currency (CBDC). The Eurosystem is the monetary authority of the euro area and comprises the ECB and the national central banks of the member states that use the euro.
The ECB launched the digital euro project in July in an investigation phase. At the time, it said a market advisory group will consider prospective users’ and distributors’ views on a digital euro.
