The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) has issued a Request for Vendor Information (RFVI) as part of its exploration process for launching a retail central bank digital currency (CBDC), named DCash 2.0. The ECCB is seeking input from parties with deployment-ready solutions for a retail CBDC, including wallet providers, core banking systems, identity managers, business intelligence, and offline payment providers. The current version of DCash, developed by Bitt, has been in pilot status since 2021 and is now exploring integration with other systems, such as real-time gross settlement (RTGS) and financial institution core banking systems.
