According to Christine Lagarde, the finance chiefs from the European Union are currently looking into the possibility of launching digital-euro. If they call in favor of the digital euro, then the world would see the digital euro being released in the coming summer.
However, it would not mean that the digital euro will be able to use by the European public. They may have to wait for more than a year in order to be able to get their hands on the digital euro. In an interview, Lagarde has stated that if the approval is given, then the central bank will ensure that the process of the digital euro goes as smoothly as possible.
There are no margins of errors so the entire process needs to be up to the mark and without any flaws. The rest of the process will then be up to the consumers from Europe who will be using the digital euro.
