However, the European Central Bank(ECB) has not accepted and commented on this and says, “it does not comment on individual party statements.” And the spokeswoman told the news that digital currencies are not an option for the ECB. The intentions of the lawmakers were revealed much earlier, and German legislators were working on the regulations and were in the news in the last year of December.
