Indonesia’s Central Bank Wants to ‘Fight’ Crypto With CBDC

12-02-2021

Indonesia is considering developing a central bank digital currency (CBDC) as one way to counter the use of cryptocurrency in the country.

 

  • Juda Agung, an assistant governor of Bank Indonesia, said in the parliament that a digital rupiah would address the effect crypto trading has on the financial system, Bloomberg reported Tuesday.
  • “A CBDC would be one of the tools to fight crypto,” he said. “We assume that people would find CBDC more reliable than crypto.”
  • Indonesia’s central bank announced its intention to develop a CBDC in May.
  • Religious leaders in the country declared earlier this month that Muslims are forbidden from using crypto owing to elements of uncertainty and wagering. Indonesia has one of the world’s largest Muslim populations.
  • As many as 7.4 million Indonesians were invested in crypto as of July, double the number of a year previously, according to Bloomberg’s report.
