That's true, sorry. In addition if GNU Taler would be used than the payment
system would respects privacy which can't be said from the current digital
payment system or from what central banks are doing (Nigeria) or planning [1].
I think Blackrock is an adviser for the ECB.  Last time I looked the companies
in [1] were co-owned by Blackrock.  Now those companies plan a CBDC possible in
the interest of corporations and banks which again are co-owned by Blackrock.
It is not understandable why the ECB does not at least try GNU Taler.
