Europe aims to empower businesses and improve the quality of people’s life by implementing new innovative technologies.

One More Step to a Digital Euro: The ECB Decided to Launch the Investigation Phase


The future of finance is digital. The digital transformation of finance becomes a dominant trend, which will bring many fundamental changes.

The role of cash (banknotes) in payments is declining. A digital euro is a new form of euros, which would complement the current euros, not replace them.
