Digital Currency Management System Central Banks

Central Banks

Central banks around the world are now contemplating the imperative of rolling-out legal tender digital currencies.

From considering the feasibility of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) system launch to developing policies and governance standards, the challenges involved in this process are significant. As this remains largely uncharted territory, ready answers and solutions are not always apparent.

Bitt's Digital Currency Management System (DCMS) provides the solutions and answers you need. We have designed our technology solutions to function as a secure and robust infrastructure platform for every aspect of digital currency launch and operationalization.

To build an ecosystem for all stakeholders, you will need the below features:

Technical

The DCMS is engineered with modern software techniques to provide a secure, scalable, performant and highly available system. Security is designed-in to use secure defaults, minimize attack surfaces and provide defense-in-depth. Independent modules allow each component to scale independently of others, allowing automatic adjustment to meet variable demands. Built-in redundancy, load balancing and health checks allow the system to automatically restore failed components, providing a highly available system. Careful attention to information management and storage protect consumer privacy while allowing regulatory bodies access to needed transaction data.

Functional

Central banks can deploy a CBDC to target market(s) via SDK, API, or through applications for target stakeholders. Bitt equips central banks with all of the tools it requires to securely mint, store, issue, distribute, redeem, and destroy CBDC.

Bitt can also provide applications that enable CBDC transactions for government, financial institutions, merchants, and consumers in a CBDC pilot scenario and beyond.

Features

    • High performance CBDC-standard transaction network; option for distributed nodes as delegated by central banks (dependent on transaction network chosen)
    • Cloud deployed / containerized modules using Kubernetes
    • Permissioned API structures for marketplace integrations
    • Integration into third party custodians
    • Extensive business logic (eg. transaction limits, wallet types/metadata, monitoring and reporting, security configurations, interest rates, integrations with other financial networks eg. foreign exchange, smart contract functionality)
  • Bitt Vault

    • Secure storage and transaction of digital currency and digital asset (private key management)
    • Customized governance structures and customizable transaction types that require specific approval from defined stakeholders
    • Hardware security modules

Integrations

The DCMS can integrate with existing financial infrastructure, including RTGS and ACH networks, core banking systems, as well as existing payment processing platforms including bill payment, airtime and top-up, remittance, and more.

Just like traditional currency ecosystems, CBDC systems require multiple elements to function correctly. At the core of the system’s infrastructure, is the need for a ledger, governing rules and processing functions. Systems require appropriate safeguards and redundancies to ensure that it is resilient in the face of security risks and technical failure.

To ensure equitable financial inclusion, systems must be simple to access and operate. CBDC systems must also inspire trust and provide users with a sense of privacy and security. Features must be highly efficient and sufficiently robust, so as to offer a wide range of financial services.

Finally, processing functions must effectively interface with those of merchants, end-users and other participants. This interoperability must ensure the prompt and reliable flow of funds throughout the domestic and international payment ecosystems.


Compatibilities

  • The Bitt DCMS meets the ITU and Stanford University CBDC standards.
  • DCMS can integrate with payment networks who support the ISO 20022 messaging standards.
  • DCMS can integrate with both blockchain-based and traditional transaction networks.
