  • Sweden's central bank, the Riksbank, could become the first to introduce its own cryptocurrency.
  • Cash usage in the Scandinavian nation is dropping rapidly, making Sweden a prime candidate for an "official" cryptocurrency.
  • The introduction of the e-krona could come within a couple of years, although "2018 may be a little too soon," according to HSBC's James Pomeroy.
