The BIS Innovation Hub, the Banque de France and the Swiss National Bank will work with a private sector consortium led by Accenture to experiment. The initiative, named Project Jura, will use a wholesale CBDC for cross-border settlement.

The private sector consortium consists of two major lenders from Switzerland, Credit Suisse and UBS
