Israel’s Central Bank ‘Not Recommended’ to Issue Own Digital Currency

An Israeli study group exploring digital currency options has recommended that the country’s central bank not issue its own token, a press release confirmed Nov. 6. Reported by the Cointelegraph.

Israel’s Central Bank ‘Not Recommended’ to Issue Own Digital Currency
