France’s central bank won’t issue its own digital currency anytime soon because doing so would be a complex undertaking that could hurt the country’s flailing economy.

However, she warned against unchecked over-exuberance, saying the virtual currency economy needs to be battle-tested to ensure that investors are protected from scams, Forbes reported.
