Marouane El Abassi, Governor of the Central Bank of Tunisia told the meeting delegates that his country was looking to launching a sovereign bitcoin bond.

The former World Bank official said the bitcoin and blockchain offered central banks an efficient tool to curb money laundering, terrorist financing, simplify remittance, and drain grey economies.
