Working Groups


The goal of the Digital Pound Foundation’s working groups is to identify, define and articulate key risks, challenges and benefits arising from the introduction of new forms of digital money, including central bank digital currencies (CBDC), stablecoins, and e-money tokens. They provide a forum in which our members are able to communicate, collaborate and share ideas and solutions towards a healthy and diverse ecosystem for new forms of digital money, whilst showcasing their skills and abilities within the sector.
