Wolfram Seidemann, chief executive officer of G+D Currency Technology, joins David Marsh, chairman of OMFIF, to discuss the OMFIF report, 'Digital currencies: A question of trust'. Published in February, this explores global public confidence in monetary, financial and payment institutions. The findings, based on a global survey of more than 13,000 individuals, reveal that those in advanced economies have little confidence in digital money issued by a technology or credit card company. Attitudes to digital money vary depending on respondents' income, education, age and nationality.
Wolfram and David's conversation covers the impact of coronavirus on people's trust in payments systems, and what the report means for central banks considering issuing digital currency.
