The introduction of digital technologies leads to new threats and opportunities for the design of the monetary and financial system. For example, it enabled the introduction of thousands of private cryptocurrencies and stablecoins and led to the publication of hundreds of papers on the (possible) introduction of public digital money  ̶  called central bank digital currencies, CBDCs by central bankers. Currently, this research of New Finance focuses on public digital money (and in particular the digital euro), stablecoins, deposit banks, cryptocurrencies, financial instability, monetary policy, and the liberalization and re-regulation of banking.
