The European Central Bank will have to consider it to be a private, public, digital currency is out of it. It is in the EU draft report. The proposal is a response to the threat of the Balance, and the private cryptocurrency on Facebook.

A joint approach to cryptocurrency’s

Facebook said in June that they are going to Balance the next year to launch it. But France and Germany said in september that it is a risk for the European financial services sector. That’s why these countries are in the evolution of a public alternative.
Reuters reports that the European Union is calling for a common approach regarding the cryptocurrency s. For example, at the joint to prohibit high-risk projects.
