Digital innovation continues to change how we transact with businesses, with Government and with each other. In the case of crypto-(and web3-) innovation, it has led to new products and governance mechanisms. In this short presentation, we will provide an overview of the evolution and different forms of digital currencies including cryptocurrencies. We will discuss (very briefly) the concept of stablecoins and central bank digital currencies as well as consider their current state of play.
