Payment systems and money are evolving rapidly. Developments in information technology, digital networks and the increase in internet-based retailing have created the demand and technological space for digital transactions that have the potential to radically change payment and financial intermediation systems.

Will COVID-19 accelerate these changes? How radical or similar could this new landscape be? What kinds of design choices and/or regulatory response might make the difference? How might central banks support and adapt?

Benoît Cœuré, Head of the Innovations Hub, Bank for International Settlements.

Christina Segal-Knowles, Executive Director for Financial Markets Infrastructure, Bank of England.
