Honduras is currently in the research phase. Central Bank of Honduras president Wilfredo Cerrato said, “The Central Bank of Honduras has also recently begun, approved by the board of directors, to initiate the study... to determine the feasibility of conducting a pilot test issuing its own digital money or a central bank digital currency.” Therefore, it’s likely Honduras may soon enter the pilot phase. The Central Bank of Honduras has also requested technical assistance from the International Monetary Fund.

A full analysis of the CBDC developments in Honduras and Honduras’s treatment of civil liberties is forthcoming.
