The ECB would limit the digital euro to a maximum of 1,5 t, says Fabio Panetta

A digital euro, if issued, would be capped at 1,5 trillion euros ($1,6 trillion), Panetta told the committee. One of the concerns of CBDCs is that consumers may keep all of their money in a digital format, effectively depositing all of their savings in the central bank and depriving consumer banks of the funds they need to lend to individuals and businesses.
