+<h1>2016-06: GNU Taler 0.0.0 released</h1>
+<p>
+ We have reached our first big milestone, the 0.0.0 release!
+ The release includes implementations of a bank, exchange, merchant and wallet
+ and is available on the GNU FTP mirrors.
+</p>
+<p>
+ While the exchange implements the
+ complete protocol, the implementations of merchant and wallet are both
+ fundamentally incomplete and still lack key features, including important
+ error handling. GNU Taler still lacks an implementation of an auditor or
+ logic for integration with "real" banks.
+ Thus, this release should not yet be used for actual financial
+ transactions.
+</p>
+<p>
+ That said, you can already setup your own functional payment system
+ and run your own toy currency -- or just try out the demo using
+ the Chrome/Chromium browser at <a href="https://demo.taler.net/">demo.taler.net</a>.
+</p>
+<p>
+ Please provide feedback to our <a href="https://gnunet.org/bugs/">bug tracker</a>.
+ There, you can also find our <a href="https://gnunet.org/bugs/roadmap_page.php">roadmap</a>
+ which contains a list of known open issues and our plans for the near future.

+<h1>2021-2: &quot;How to issue a Central Bank Digital Currency&quot; published</h1>
+<p>
+We are happy to announce the publication of our paper on &quot;How to Issue a Central Bank Digital Currency&quot; by the <a href="https://snb.ch/">Swiss National Bank</a>.
+</p>
+<p>
+With the emergence of Bitcoin and recently proposed stablecoins from BigTechs, such as Diem (formerly Libra), central banks face a choice of either leaving the field to private actors or offering their own digital alternative to physical cash. We do not address whether a central bank should issue a central bank digital currency (CBDC). Instead, we demonstrate how a central bank could do so, if desired or needed. We propose a token-based system without distributed ledger technology and show how earlier-deployed, software-only electronic cash can be improved upon to preserve transaction privacy, meet regulatory requirements in a compelling way, and offer a level of quantum-resistant protection against systemic privacy risk. Neither monetary policy nor financial stability would be materially affected because our CBDC would replicate physical cash rather than bank deposits.

+<h1>2021-2: Helping the European Commission</h1>
+<p>
+In December 2020 the European Parliament asked the European Commission
+about the suitability of GNU Taler to establish a digital Euro in a
+<a href="https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/E-9-2020-006895_EN.html">small inquiry</a>.
+In the <a href="https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/E-9-2020-006895-ASW_EN.html">official answer</a>,
+the commission mostly asserts that it is unable &quot;to assess the functioning of the GNU Taler payment system&quot;,
+and points to a maximum transaction limit of 150 EUR, without really answering
+the questions raised by the inquiry.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+To assist the European Union with regards to the inquiry, we point
+out that the operation of GNU Taler is completely and transparently
+made public at <a href="https://taler.net/">https://taler.net/</a>,
+so if the European Commission is, like anyone else, in position to assess the
+functioning of the GNU Taler payment system. We recently also described
+details of how the system would function for an E-Euro in a
+<a href="https://www.snb.ch/en/mmr/papers/id/working_paper_2021_03">working paper
+with the Swiss National Bank</a>. Based on our publicly available documentation,
+Prof. Birchler, a previous member of the directorate of the Swiss National Bank,
+<a href="https://www.batz.ch/2021/03/digitales-bargeld-swiss-made/">publicly
+commented</a> that our approach is the best published proposal for digital cash.
+</p>
+
+<p> With respect to EU policy objectives, we would like to point out that the
+150 EUR limit postulated by the European Commission for private payments is
+very low, and in our view incompatible with the data protection objectives of
+the European Union. We want to stress that with GNU Taler, only the citizen
+making the payment can remain anonymous. Thus, Taler is not suitable for money
+laundering or illegal business activities as receivers of payments are easily
+identified. A recent <a
+href="https://www.ecb.europa.eu//press/pr/date/2021/html/ecb.pr210113~ec9929f446.en.html">broad
+consultation</a> by the European Central Bank showed that the European
+population demands privacy compareable to physical cash when it comes to the
+Digital Euro. With cash, the transaction limit is at 10,000 EUR. Thus, were
+the 150 EUR limit apply truly to all forms of privacy-friendly electronic
+cash, this would be a key point where the European Union should provide for more
+citizen-friendly regulation, especially for technical solutions that include
+security features that adequately minimize the risk of citizens suffering
+financial losses.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Finally, we would like to stress that the GNU Taler project is open to
+a cooperation with the European Central Bank, and is happy to answer
+questions from specialists of the European Parliament or the European
+Commission.

+<h1>2021-3: &quot;Why a Digital Euro should be Online-first and Bearer-based
+&quot; published</h1>
+<p>
+We are happy to announce the publication of our paper on &quot;Why a Digital Euro should be Online-first and Bearer-based&quot;.
+</p>
+<p>
+The European Central Bank’s “Report on a Digital Euro” considers
+two distinct types of designs for a digital euro. It argues that all functional
+requirements laid out in the report can be fulfilled by operating the two systems
+in parallel:
+<ul>
+<li>A bearer-based digital euro based on trusted hardware that can be used
+offline, anonymously, and without third-party intervention.
+<li>An account-based digital euro that can be used online, is fully software-
+based and excludes the possibility of anonymity.
+</ul>
+The report does not discuss other choices of hybrid systems. However, the
+choice is more arbitrary than it might seem at first sight: bearer-based systems
+are not necessarily offline payment systems, and online payment systems do not
+need to exclude anonymity.
+</p>
+<p>
+We argue that operating a bearer-based payment system to complement an
+account-based CBDC in order to gain offline and privacy features is not a good
+trade-off. Adding permanent, regular offline capabilities via the bearer-based
+payment instrument constantly exposes the CBDC to the severe issues inherent
+in offline-capable payment systems. Instead, the offline mode of operation
+should be restricted to scenarios where it is actually required, which mitigates
+the risks.
