Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for December 1, 2020

Crypto Industry News:

Several experts from various European banks agreed that we are even four or five years away from the proof of the digital euro concept.

In today's panel entitled "Upgrading money to the digital age: bringing the digital euro", participants agreed that the current task is primarily to familiarize everyone with the specifics of the digital euro, postponing real implementation for the future.

Central bank digital currencies, or CBDC, have been an extremely popular topic of debate in recent years, but especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Austeja Sostakaite from the European Central Bank said the ECB would not make a decision on whether to pursue the digital euro by mid-2021, which contradicts the ECB president's estimates earlier this month. The question for now, he said, is: "How do you introduce the euro into the ecosystem and how does it work with commercial bank money?"

Swedish Riksbank advisor Carl Andreas Claussen said the central bank was finalizing its e-krona concept review in February, but similarly estimated that the real launch would be "in four or five years".

"There are several legal issues and it is such a big issue that we cannot make a decision. We need political support. We proposed to the parliament that it set up a committee of experts to take care of it," he said.

Sweden is part of the European Union but not the euro area, which means it keeps its own currency. The internal use of cash in Sweden is among the lowest in the world.

Trading Recommendations:
