Giori logo

Giori Digital enables central banks to bring their sovereign currency into the digital economy as a digital form of legal tender. The Giori legacy in banknotes is known worldwide, starting from the first multi-colored banknote printing machine, invented by Gualtiero Giori 70 years ago and delivered to the Casa de Moneda in Buenos Aires in 1947.

The Giori name has earned a highly-regarded reputation of trust and excellence with central banks worldwide. Giori innovations have always sought to make nations autonomous in the production of their currency and to enhance the prestige of central banks. Giori Digital’s goal is to maintain the role of central bank currency in the digital age.

Based in Switzerland, Giori Digital provides a digital solution that parallels the proven processes of printed banknotes with secure, advanced cryptography in a highly-centralized model. Giori Digital supports central banks with more than technology. Giori Digital partners with central banks to provide expertise for the legislative, regulatory, and security challenges of legal tender in the digital domain. ®
