The Norwegian central bank has reached a significant milestone in its digital currency initiatives by publishing the open source code for the country’s central bank digital currency (CBDC) sandbox.
As Nahmii, official CBDC partner of Norges Bank, said in a blog post, the sandbox is available on GitHub and is designed to provide an interactive interface with the test network, enabling functions such as minting, burning, and transferring ERC-20 tokens.
Nahmii emphasized that the current version of the code does not support MetaMask’s Ethereum wallet and that only users with the right credentials can access it privately.
In addition to implementing smart contracts and proper access control, Norges Bank’s sandbox includes a custom user interface and network monitoring tools such as BlockScout and Grafana. Nahmii notes that the user interface also displays a summary that filters transactions on the network.
Norges previously mentioned Ethereum in a CBDC-related blog post back in May. Norges officially announced plans to conduct CBDC trials last April, hoping to find a solution. Preferred CBDC by adopting different designs for a period of 2 years.
