Earlier this week the Bank of Thailand (BOT) announced the results of its proof of concept(PoC) for a wholesale Central Bank Digital Currency(CBDC). The overall conclusion was positive, though some areas were identified as needing further work.

泰國銀行(BOT)本週稍早公布其批發型中央銀行數位貨幣(CBDC)的概念驗證(PoC)成果。整體結果正向,但有些領域仍待進一步測試。

"The outcome of Project Inthanon has demonstrated that DLT has not only increased efficiency but also reduced risks and overall costs in the financial ecosystem," said Pimolpa Suntichok, Senior EVP, Siam Commercial Bank.

「茵他儂專案的成果已表明,分散式帳本技術(DLT)不僅可提升效率,還能降低金融生態系統的風險及總成本,」暹羅商業銀行高階執行副總裁匹默波.杉第雀歐表示。

Project Inthanon, named after Thailand’s highest mountain, had three aims. First as a tool for collaborative learning about distributed ledger technology(DLT)by Thai financial institutions.

以泰國第一高峰命名的「茵他儂專案」有3項目標。首要是作為泰國金融機構分散式帳本技術的協作學習工具。
