The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) is planning to launch its Digital EC currency (DCash) next month.
DCash is a securely minted digital version of the Eastern Caribbean dollar issued by the ECCB.
The ECCB has begun issuing DCash, which select consumers from selected merchants are using to make purchases as part of the closed segment of the DCash Pilot.
This closed segment is the final step before the public launch.
In coming weeks, the ECCB will continue to work with registered financial institutions, merchants and agents to achieve full readiness for introduction in the pilot countries: Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Saint Lucia.
