Focus for 2019 is in three regions:
In Mexico we are working with a local developer who wishes to use a digital currency for the unbanked.
In Dubai and Saudi Arabia, we are looking at closed loop currencies for retail and university campuses.
In India we have integrated our solution into India Universal Payment Interface (UPI). This allows easy loading of digital cash from any bank account or government service.
The trials being conducted by a leading Indian bank will showcase the possibility of a Bank Issued Digital Currency.
The Reserve Bank of India (India’s central bank) has already expressed interest in Central Bank Digital Currencies.
