In today’s episode, we have a super panel, featuring the Ex governor of the Barbados Central Bank, Dr. Deslisle Worrell, Founder of Bitt.com Gabriel Abed, and the CBDO of Bitt.com, Simon Chantry. We uncover the amazing story of how Gabriel and his team defied all odds with their crazy idea for central bank digital currencies, and how they managed to get a nod of approval from the governor of the central bank himself. We also look into how the events unfolded over the years, what the future holds for CBCDs and how Bitt.com plans to implement CBDCs across the Caribbean.
