The central bank chief further stressed the certain needs that are to be determined before digitizing its currency such as whether a digital currency will be interest-bearing, and what kind of technology will be adopted.

Even though the domestic use of electronic payments has significantly expanded along with an improvement of mobile technology and communication, the currency system in Brazil is essentially limited to only physical form.

Last year, the country’s central bank created a study group to look upon the potential benefits and impact of issuing its currency in a digital format.

The study looked upon assessing risks involving cybersecurity, data protection, and regulatory compliance issues. It also delved into how a digital currency will affect financial inclusion and stability, and the conduct of monetary and economic policies.

Brazil Became the Second Country in Latin America to Launch a Bitcoin ETF

In  September, Brazil’s Chief Central Banker, Roberto Campos Neto, said that the country could be ready for a digital currency (CBDC) by 2022.  The digital currency will be part of Brazil’s plan to digitize its payment system, including launching an instant payments system and a competitive Open Banking System.

Last month, Brazil’s QR Capital received approval from the Brazilian Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM) to list its Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) on the São Paulo-based B3 Stock Exchange. The move made Brazil the second Latin American country to approve a Bitcoin ETF.
