Bank of England to Create Hybrid Intrabank Payment System, Includes Bitcoin Support
The Bank of England is known for its progressive outlook. On multiple occasions, representatives of the English Central Bank have hinted the use of digital currency and blockchain technology in the near future. They may have been referring to the recently announced plan to revamp the country’s interbank payment system all this while.

In an announcement, the Bank of England made its plans to upgrade its interbank fund transfer network by the end of this decade. The  central bank is looking forward to adopting the latest available technologies in the fintech sector. This move is expected to help the country’s banking sector to insulate itself from cyber-attacks while ensuring compatibility with digital currencies.

According to a leading news media outlet, the Bank of England’s Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) system currently handles over 500 billion pounds worth of transactions every day.  Speaking about the bank’s plans to revamp its system, Executive Director of the Bank of England Andrew Hauser says,

    “The world of payments is changing rapidly, and central banks need to keep pace if we are to deliver our mission of monetary and financial stability … whilst also enabling innovation and competition where we can.”

Well, here we are. So-called Bitcoin news outlets that constantly bash Bitcoin itself are now writing incredibly glowing appraisals of one of the most pernicious central banks of all time. Satoshi, I suspect, would not approve. "The Times, 1/3/2009: Chancellor announces second bailout for banks"

As ever crypto news sites add some additional spin.

Here's the line from the original Reuters article.

'Other goals included allowing forward-dated payments and creating an interface with the 'distributed-ledger' technology that underpins digital currencies such as Bitcoin "if/when they achieve critical mass", it said.'
