MORE IDEAS FROM CBDCs Unlock Endless Fiscal Policy Options | Ripple

Instantly Deposited Into Digital Wallets

Depending on a CBDC platform’s structure, CBDCs could be deposited directly into digital wallets nearly instantly. In the model where citizens had accounts at their central bank, stimulus payments from the central bank could be delivered in seconds, assuming adequate Know Your Customer (KYC) checks were in place at a national level. In the indirect two-tier model, where commercial banks remain central to the financial system, stimulus via CBDCs could still be faster than today’s model.

As a result, the banked population with higher incomes quickly received their stimulus payments, while the unbanked and underbanked population—those in the most need of financial relief—were at the end of the line.

With over 30 percent of the U.S. population expected to be unemployed by this summer, and the GDP shrinking at a faster rate that the Great Depression of the 1930s, the current situation is uncharted territory, even for the experts.
