It has been reported today that the Rwandan Central Bank is said to be looking into a digital currency.

The national bank wants  to learn from the experiences of central banks such as the Royal Bank of Canada, Singapore (MAS) and the Netherlands (DNB), which have tested the use of blockchain technology recently.

“There are still concerns about how exactly you convert the entire currency into digital form, how to distribute that and how fast can you process those transactions,” Uwase said. “Challenges come in, if technology is down how do you deal with such issues? “We will join in once we are ready.”
