A Policy Framework for E-Money: A Report on Bank of Canada Research

S. Mohammad R. Davoodalhosseini () and Francisco Rivadeneyra

Discussion Papers from Bank of Canada

Abstract: We present a policy framework for electronic money and payments. The framework poses a set of positive questions related to the areas of responsibility of central banks: payments systems, monetary policy and financial stability. The questions are posed to four broad forms of e-money: privately or publicly issued, and with centralized or decentralized verification of transactions. This framework is intended to help evaluate the trade-offs that central banks face in the decision to issue new forms of e-money.
