Riksbank begins cooperation with external participants in e-krona pilot

News During the next phase of the e-krona pilot, the Riksbank will test the technical solution for the e-krona together with Handelsbanken and TietoEVRY. The e-krona pilot is therefore moving on from only having simulated participants to cooperation with external participants in the test environment.

Involving external actors as participants in the test environment will make it possible for the Riksbank to evaluate the integration between the participants’ existing systems and the technical platform for the e-krona pilot. The Riksbank will, for instance, be testing an integration of the payment flows developed during the first year of the pilot with the participants’ internal systems.
