Central Bank Digital Currency Design: The Interest Rate-vs-Convenience Frontier

We explore the implications of introducing a central bank digital currency (CBDC) through commercial banks that differ in size. We focus on two design features of CBDCs: interest-bearing and payment convenience, which correspond to “store of value” and “medium of exchange” properties of currencies. A CBDC that pays interest to users enhances monetary policy passthrough, but it harms small banks by shifting deposits and lending activities to large banks.
