Mexican CBDC will be ready by 2024

Mexico’s Central Bank, Banxico, has unveiled plans to roll out its Central Bank Digital Currency or CBDC in less than half-a-decade from now. In a tweet sent out Wednesday, the Mexican government says it “will have a digital currency of its own in circulation” by 2024 having seen the “utmost importance [of] these new technologies and state-of-the-art payment infrastructure as options of great value to advance financial inclusion in the country.”

“We’re going to have the use of paper money as the preponderant payment domestically for a long time, so we don’t want to be absent from these technological advances,” He added.
