what about nostro accounts?

is this initiative like xrp do they want to free the trillions in nostro?

or is it like all the other projects that work with nostro?

I feel like Brad, at least, has continued to point out that these other approaches do not address the nostro-vostro accounts and/or free up liquidity. 

ODL still seems to go beyond the messaging aspect alone in order to free up all that liquidity. I could be wrong though.

National Bank of France gives CBDC a go

France’s central bank launched one of the biggest CBDC trials in the EU to date, executing a series of bond transactions via blockchain. The pilot program will continue for 10 months, CoinDesk reported, citing a report by the Financial Times. The transactions were executed by the Banque de France in cooperation with a consortium of major financial market participants in the country using a system developed by IBM.

Soren Mortensen, global director of financial markets at IBM, is quoted in the report as saying:

This project went well beyond previous blockchain initiatives because it successfully tested most central securities depository and central bank processes whilst eliminating current interim steps, such as reconciliation between market intermediaries. We are rapidly moving towards fundamental change in the post-trade market infrastructure.

The bank executed almost 500 instructions in both primary and secondary markets. The transaction value has not been disclosed. The pilot program included the French public debt office, major French banks, and other notable establishments. It is led by securities depository Euroclear.

All eyes on the long-term outcome

France is without a doubt one of the highest-profile eurozone countries to dare such an experiment. Sweden, who uses the e-krona, is another. The Swedish Riksbank is considering digitizing its national currency.

France’s central bank published a request for proposals for CBDC “experiment” applications earlier this year in an attempt to grasp the risks and mechanisms of CBDCs better. They have also conducted a few experiments using a CBDC for cross-border payments, the wholesale market, and interbank settlements.

I saw Gary Gensler in the photo of the fintech speakers. Remember when Jay Clayton and Brad were sitting on stage together and Clayton didn't say a damn thing about security status of XRP. :unsure:

To be fair, that's not the place to being it up.
