A Global Digital Currency Is a Key Part of the Great Reset
The highly speculative Bitcoin cryptocurrency was launched as a pilot project to test the technical feasibility of such a CBDC. In fact, the deputy governor of the Bank of England Ben Broadbent, referred to Bitcoin as the model technology for the CBDC (https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/speech/2016/central-banks-and-digital-currencies), which raises the question of whether central banks themselves are behind the creation of the cryptocurrency (hiding behind the pseudonym of its inventor Satoshi Nakamoto).
The CBDC is a key element of the “Great Reset” policy launched by Prince Charles, UN Climate guru Mark Carney and World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab (cf. SAS 01/21). On Jan. 24, 2020, months before launching the Great Reset, the WEF launched the Global Consortium for Digital Currency Governance, describing it as “the first global consortium focused on designing a framework for the governance of digital currencies.”
“Digital currency, a cross-cutting topic that requires input across sectors, functions, and geographies, is a key area of interest for the Forum,” said Schwab. “Building on our long history of public-private cooperation, we hope that hosting this consortium will catalyze the conversations necessary to inform a robust framework of governance for global digital currencies.”
Mark Carney, a former Bank of England governor, is also quoted on the WEF web site, saying that “Governance is the core pillar of any form of digital currency. It is critical that any framework on digital currencies ensure security, efficiency and legitimacy of payments while ensuring fair and open competition. We welcome the World Economic Forum’s platform to help develop a robust governance framework for inclusion through digital currencies.”
