Visa has announced a partnership with blockchain technology company ConsenSys to jointly develop a module designed to help central banks and financial institutions build user-friendly services on central bank digital currency (CBDC) networks. Visa said the partnership connects the new CBDC framework with the existing financial ecosystem to create a roadmap for adoption and allow consumers to spend CBDC at any merchant that accepts Visa. Visa expects to pilot use cases for the module in the spring when the company is ready to work with central banks, financial institutions and fintech firms to integrate the module into their technology stacks.
