We Want to Play an Active Role in Crypto Coins
In an interview with the Challenges, Lagarde touched upon many issues, particularly crypto currencies. Stating that he wanted to bring the European Central Bank closer to the people, Lagarade also gave moderate messages about crypto currencies.

Lagarde underlined the applicability and benefit analysis of a possible central bank digital currency and underlined that they want to play an rol active role da in this regard.
Although Lagarde plays a moderate role, there are those who disagree with him.
