The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank is pleased to invite you to the regional media event to mark the public roll-out of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank’s digital currency – DCash!

The event will be streamed live on social media on the DCashEC platforms and the ECCB Connects pages on Wednesday, 31 March 2021 at 2:00pm AST.

As part of the live online event, Governor of the ECCB, Timothy N.J. Antoine, along with President of Bitt Inc, Brian Popelka, will deliver remarks. Live DCash transactions will also be demonstrated and a Q&A segment with the media will take place.


DCash is a securely minted digital version of the Eastern Caribbean dollar issued by the ECCB. It offers a safer, faster, cheaper way to pay for goods and services and send EC funds to other DCash users all using a smart device. From 31 March, consumers and merchants can sign up to use DCash through participating financial institutions or by downloading the DCash App from the Google Play or Apple Store. The ECCB has been working in partnership with Bitt Inc for over two years to develop this digital version of the EC currency in an effort to increase financial inclusion, competitiveness and resilience for the people of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union.

Be part of this live event as we celebrate DCash going live in the pilot countries of Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Saint Christopher (St Kitts) and Nevis and Saint Lucia.
