Gawaxab suggested that central bank action may have been prompted by the increase in private cryptos. He stated:

The value and number of cryptocurrency has risen, raising the possibility that a financial system could exist outside of the control of central banks and governments. To strengthen the Central Bank’s authority over money and to maintain control over payments, central banks must have a clear digital currency agenda.

Gawaxab, a Namibian journalist, is quoted as saying that the proposed digital currency agenda for Namibia should be rejected unless it comes out of consultations between the public, financial institutions and governments.

The BON governor said that, while the central bank wants to launch the CBDC but that it should be mindful of the possible impact on financial stability that such a launch would have on the country’s policymakers.
