Project Helvetia – as described in this report – is a prime example of how the BISIH,
together with partners, can develop deep insights into the latest financial technologies
and explore the development of central bank public goods. Project Helvetia investigates how
central bank money can be used for settlement in a world where securities and other financial
assets migrate from today’s centralised financial market infrastructures to new so-called
decentralised or tokenised platforms for trading and post-trading activities. One proof
of concept relies on wholesale central bank digital currency (w-CBDC) whereas another is
based on a link to the existing central bank system for wholesale payments.
