Digital Pound Holdings Could Be Limited to £10,000, Central Bank Says

“The Bank would place some limits on holdings of digital pounds, at least during its introductory period,” to avoid citizens hoarding their assets in safe central bank money and skirting around the commercial banking system, a consultation published today by the central bank and U.K. Treasury said. “We judge that a limit of between £10,000 and £20,000 per individual is likely to strike an appropriate balance between managing risks and supporting wide usability of the digital pound.”
