Technical analysis of Ethereum for 23/04/2019

Crypto Industry News:

The central bank of Russia reviewed the potential benefits and disadvantages of central bank digital currencies (CBDC), as we read in the published report.

In the document entitled "Is there a future of central bank digital currency", the Central Bank of the Russian Federation presented a number of potential benefits from CBDC, such as their ability to reduce transaction costs in the economy, as well as providing assets that are less risky and more liquid. However, the Bank of Russia noted that the CBDC's potential for minimizing transaction costs can only be realized if the CBDC technical solution offers a better tool in terms of ease of payment and savings compared to fiat money and debit cards. Recognizing the sufficient advantages of CBDC, the central bank indicated the lack of CBDC anonymity as the only potential disadvantage, namely the inability of CBDC to provide the same level of anonymity that gives cash.
