Surveys on Electronic Money
AbstractThis paper investigates the views of electronic money operators and innovators on the possibilities and implications of e-money, especially with respect to replacing central bank money as well as technical issues regarding e-money, its implications for the financial industry and central banking. This has been done using surveys of major e-money innovators and operators, based on the assumption that these operators and innovators are likely to shape the future framework for e-money schemes. It seems that innovators and operators are quite confident about the future of e-money – despite problems and obstacles surrounding current testing – and that central banks’ monopoly of the issuance of money as a medium of exchange will no longer be unchallenged.
