False information concerning the sale of e-kronas

News On certain websites and in social media, false information is circulating claiming that the Riksbank is selling e-kronas.

In 2017, the Riksbank started a project aimed at examining whether the krona needs to be issued in an electronic form, an ‘e-krona’. The project has not been concluded and no decision has been taken on issuing e-kronas.

However, on certain websites and in social media, claims have been made that it is possible to purchase e-kronas. The Riksbank has also been contacted by individuals describing how they have been called by companies claiming to be selling e-kronas on behalf of the Riksbank.

Please contact the Riksbank at registratorn@riksbank.se if you come across an offer to purchase e-kronas.
