Catar se encuentra en una “etapa fundacional” en la investigación para desarrollar una moneda digital emitida por su banco central (CBDC, por sus siglas en inglés), dijo el jueves el gobernador de la autoridad monetaria de ese país, Bandar Bin Mohammed Bin Saoud Al-Thani.

“Estamos evaluando los pros y contras de emitir una CBDC, y buscando la tecnología y plataforma correctas para hacerlo”, dijo el funcionario en el Economic Forum de Catar. Actualmente, la moneda del país, el riyal, está vinculada al dólar estadounidense.

“Los criptoactivos son una innovación tecnológica, y en mi opinión nos pueden llevar a una nueva era de pagos accesibles, rápidos y servicios financieros”, dijo. “Aquellos criptoactivos que no están respaldados por otros activos o por una autoridad monetaria podrían ser menos creíbles”.

Una encuesta reciente del Banco de Pagos Internacionales encontró que nueve de cada 10 bancos centrales estaban buscando emitir una moneda digital respaldada por el estado. El país vecino a Qatar, Dubai, también se ha convertido en un hub cripto, ofreciendo un hogar a empresas como Crypto.com y FTX.
