Sweden’s Central Bank Governor has outlined a six-step plan on how the state bank can implement its own digital currency.
He outlined a checklist that needs to be completed before the idea is fully implemented. Sweden’s digital currency will have to meet the following criteria.
The timeline for meeting each six of these points is still open for discussion, but we probably cannot expect a fully fleshed-out Swedish digital currency until 2021, at the earliest.
Sweden's Central Bank Governor just described a six-step plan on how they would implement their own digital currency:
– 24/7 payments anywhere
– Cross currency & borders
– Update legal tender laws
– Issued directly from the bank
– Digital IDs
– Physical cash incase it fails pic.twitter.com/I8XFGt8u4e

Sweden’s dive into digital currencies is in line with trends in other nations who seek to adopt a similar concept.
China, for example, says it is almost ready with its own state-backed digital currency, called the ‘DECP.’ It will be a pegged Stablecoins are a class of cryptocurrency that aims to provide price stability. A perceived drawback of cryptocurrency is price volatility.... More, of course.
Other countries, like Turkey, plan on releasing similar state-backed stablecoins in the coming years.
In short, there is something of a ‘global arms race’ among nation-states over which one can be the first to release such a financial instrument.
The rise of state-backed stablecoins is a net boom to the cryptocurrency world but, ultimately, their purpose is to replace speculative cryptocurrencies.
However, Bitcoin’s resilience has proven that cryptocurrencies can’t simply be ‘replaced’ — they are part and parcel of the blockchain industry. Therefore, although these central banks believe they are creating stablecoins to replace Bitcoin, they will soon realize that such a task is near impossible.
