The banks said they should create a digital euro based on encryption technology while establishing a common pan-European payment platform:

“Users of the digital euro – whether human or machine – must be clearly identified. This requires a European, or more broadly, global identity standard. For each form of digital currency, Adopting a standard for identifying customers, this standard should be as strict as the standards applicable to banks and other obligatory entities in combating money laundering and terrorist financing under the current legal framework."
