Cryptocurrency in Canada

The presentation was presented to Stephen Poloz, Governor of the Bank of Canada, as well as the board of directors of the central bank, as a two-year research project on whether the bank should issue its own digital currency.

According to the presentation, the digital currency issued by the central bank will offer all the benefits of assets secured by the central bank and all the convenience and security of wireless electronic payments.

“We need to innovate to stay in the game,” the presentation said.


The proposed digital currency can also help governments gather more information, according to the presentation.

“Personal data is not transmitted to the recipient, but can be transferred to the police or tax authorities,” the presentation said.
