  • S. Korea's Central Bank Says It Won’t Issue a Digital Currency in Near Future

    South Korea's central bank, the Bank of Korea (BOK), says it won’t be issuing a central bank digital currency (CBDC) in the near term, local English-language newspaper the Korea Herald reports Jan. 29.


    Having conducted a study into the prospects for domestic CBDC issuance, the BOK has reportedly concluded there is no urgent need to pursue such a project in the close future. An unnamed BOK official told the Korea Herald that the study was focused on examining the possible legal and social effectiveness of CBDCs from a wide perspective, adding that:

    • "We have no plans to issue any type of CBDC that is available for all people in the near future. We have to work further on benefits and costs of CBDC implementation first."

    The official reportedly added that the BOK now plans to conduct further, more detailed studies into the prospects and impact of CBDC issuance.

    A CBDC is a digital currency issued by a central bank, which has the status of legal tender and other properties of centralized, fiat money.

    As recently reported, a survey from the Switzerland-based Bank for International Settlements (BIS) — an organization comprised of of 60 of the world’s central banks — found that seventy percent of central banks worldwide are currently conducting research into CBDC issuance.

    Notably, only five of the central banks BIS surveyed have actually progressed to running CBDC pilot projects — including Sweden and Uruguay.

    A recent Cointelegraph analysis piece outlined the current positions of multiple governments and central banks globally toward CBDC issuance. 🤔

  • Accounting代写 是一门以研究财务活动和成本资料为基础,形成协助决策的信息系统,以有效管理经济的应用学科,是社会学科的组成部分。那么如何来学习会计学呢?不管什么学科,基础知识当然都是很重要的,对于Accounting代写来说,基础的理论知识,就需要多背多写了,当然,对学习来说,做题来巩固也是必不可少的;会计是一门操作性很强的专业,仅凭看书做题很难真正掌握要点,所以必须结合实际来学习。会计学研究的对象是资金的运动,不妨拿自己的经济来演练,把自己当做正在工作的会计,以“单位”经济活动来研究自己的经济,也可以拓展到其他方面,代入实际操作,掌握知识会轻松很多。学习虽然不容易,但只要是下定了决心,相信你一定会成功的。
