The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) invites submissions of expression of interest from qualified persons to fill the role of Blockchain Technical Adviser to support its piloting of a digital EC currency (DXCD).
The pilot project, scheduled to commence at the end of January 2019, is a research initiative and will cover a period of approximately 16-18 months. It will provide a safe space in a controlled live environment to issue DXCD and facilitate an informed understanding of its impact on several constructs including:
- The ECCU monetary and financial systems;
- Circulation of EC currency;
- Financial intermediation in a digital environment; and
- Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering/Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) regulatory compliance.
