As regards the design of the transfer mechanism used to validate transactions, the Eurosystem will further explore a digital euro solution, in which transactions would be made online and would be validated by a third party, as well as a peer-to-peer validated solution for offline payments.

The Eurosystem will explore options that could allow a digital euro to replicate some cash-like features and enable greater privacy for low-value transactions.

In general, a number of further steps would need to be taken before a digital euro could be introduced. In the first quarter of 2023, the European Commission will propose a regulation to establish the digital euro, which is expected to help achieve the digital euro objectives.

The Eurosystem will continue to actively engage with a large number of stakeholders, including European policymakers, throughout the remainder of the investigation phase.

In October 2023 the Governing Council could decide to start a realisation phase to develop and test technical solutions and business arrangements for a digital euro.
