Last year, MAS and the Fed’s New York Innovation Centre teamed up to explore the use of wholesale CBDCs for cross-border payments.

The experiment was conducted in a test environment and the hypothetical payments were settled using simulated wholesale central bank digital currencies.

The teams interlinked the distinct central bank currency ledgers, providing flexibility in the design and operation of each ledger to the respective central bank.

This enabled payments to be safely executed across multiple ledgers without the need for a central clearing authority or the establishment of a shared central network.
