€ 100 million digital bond was CBDC test, says Banque de France

It turns out that the 100 million euro digital bond issued by the European Investment Bank earlier this week was actually a test of a digital currency from the European central bank. An announcement Thursday from France’s central bank, Banque de France, revealed that the digital bond was paid using a CBDC on a blockchain.
