Taiwan’s Central Bank May Need 2 Years to Complete Work on CBDC – According to a report, Taiwan’s central bank may require another two years to complete work on its central bank digital currency (CBDC), which has not yet been completed. The bank’s upcoming tasks include gaining the public’s support, making sure the system is stable, and creating the legal basis for the currency.
Yang Chin-long, the governor of Taiwan’s central bank, recently disclosed that his agency is still working on the project two years after development on the country’s central bank digital currency (CBDC) commenced. Yang cautioned that the process may take the central bank up to two years to complete.
In addition, Yang, who spoke at a forum on digital currencies, said that the central bank had been simulating the use of the CBDC in what Reuters described as a closed-loop environment. The central bank now has to deal with three major tasks, the same article stated.

These include informing the public and ultimately gaining their support, making sure the system is stable, and creating a legal framework for the currency. The governor acknowledged that the entire procedure might take longer than the projected two years, according to the report.

“We still need to grow. We must consider the next generation because the majority of young people in the future would use mobile phones,” Yang is cited as saying in the report.
