German Finance Minister: Facing the challenges of Internet giants such as Facebook, will introduce a central bank digital currency called “e-euro”

On October 4th, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said when talking about Facebook's Libra, one of the core national sovereignty is issuing currency, and we will not leave it to private companies. In the face of the Internet giant's plan (Facebook issued Libra), it said it will introduce a central bank digital currency called "e-euro", which believes that such a payment system for European financial centers and their integration with the world financial system are Beneficially, this area should not be left to China, Russia, the United States or any private institution. Foreign media commented that Scholz has long been regarded as a skeptic in terms of cryptocurrency. However, the minister changed his previous position by supporting the digital euro.
