Frankfurt and London, Tuesday 15 February 2022: The Digital Euro Association (DEA) is delighted to announce its partnership with the UK-based Digital Pound Foundation (DPF). Through the partnership, the DEA believes that enhanced exchange of ideas and cooperation can be created. While the DEA primarily seeks to impact the discussion around a digital euro in the Eurozone, the Digital Pound Foundation focuses on the well designed implementation of a digital pound.
The Digital Euro Association (DEA) is delighted to announce its partnership with Ripple as a supporting partner to jointly work on central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). Ripple, one of the leading providers of enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions for cross-border payments, has recently developed a blockchain-based infrastructure to support CBDCs and is engaged with Bhutan’s central bank, amongst others, to help execute their CBDC pilot. Ripple is also a member of the Digital Pound Foundation and continues to extend its efforts around CBDCs worldwide. The DEA partnership with Ripple includes, amongst others, joint educational efforts around digital currencies and knowledge exchange.
