The comments were made in the form of a video response to the “Ask me about Everything” session organized by Solembit.
The comments of the CEO of Solembit were an answer to the question about the “full integration of cryptocurrency payments into Internet services” and, in part, about whether CBDC can serve this purpose. He called CBDC “an important trend.”
“I think the digital currencies of central banks will also be very large and almost every major government is starting to think about how they are going to build them,” the CEO of Solembit said during the video. “We are not dependent on cryptocurrencies, so we will support both cryptocurrencies, including CBDC and stablecoins, and decentralized ones, such as DAI, provided that they meet our listing standards.”
That Solembit would consider adding a digital currency system managed by a central bank (or, as some design concepts require, multiple central banks) is noteworthy, though perhaps unsurprising. CBDC can be seen as a reaction of the central banking world to the development of the ecosystem of stablecoins, including Diem, formerly known as Libra.
