“Personally, I doubt very much that any Central Bank would want to truly adopt one of the digital currencies that have become so popular as of late,” says Al Colombo, Senior Design Specialist and a security SME (Subject Matter Expert). “The basis for a cryptocurrency was, and continues to be to avoid doing business with traditional banks that control the currency.”
