The Riksbank is adapting to the digital world

The Riksbank is analysing the possibility of modernising the Riksbank’s money and system for rapid payments so that they are better adapted to a digital future. It is the Riksbank’s ambition that all payments will eventually go via the Riksbank’s system to safeguard the stability and efficiency of the market. The Riksbank has also pointed out that something must be done to slow down the rapid decrease of cash usage.
