The lecture entitled ‘Digital currency - between control and privacy, or how to live in a cashless society’ will be conducted by Ph.D. Magdalena Markiewicz.  Moderator: Associate Professor Beata Majecka.

There have been various forms of money throughout history. We live in a world of cashless payments that facilitate the daily lives of consumers and businesses. During the lecture, we will go one step further and analyse the challenges and benefits of introducing digital currency. Already, some central banks are taking some related actions. The lecture will explore what digital currency is, analyse the impact of its introduction on financial control, but also on privacy. We will also try to consider whether digital currencies are .... green, i.e. whether they fit in with the ideas of sustainability and ESG finance.
