The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) is pleased to advise that full functionality of the DCash
digital payments platform has been restored effective Wednesday, 9 March. DCash is the
digital version of the Eastern Caribbean (EC) dollar.
As part of the restoration, the platform now benefits from several upgrades including an
enhanced certificate management process and an updated version of the software which
provides the foundation for the DCash system. Extensive testing and assurance exercises
were conducted prior to restoration of the platform to ensure full functionality of the
service in accordance with quality assurance specifications.
The ECCB is continuously monitoring the system’s performance to optimise the user
experience and increase user engagement. Revolutionising the way money is transferred
throughout the ECCU, DCash makes it easier for ECCU citizens to move money within and
across borders, ‘Connecting the Region, Transforming Lives’.
Once DCash users load their digital wallets, payments and money transfers to friends,
family and merchants in the DCash network can be made faster, safer and cheaper. DCash
is sent and received within mere seconds, from the convenience of anywhere and with
no transaction fees.
Seven of the eight ECCB member countries are currently enrolled in the DCash pilot;
Anguilla will join soon. The introduction of an e-commerce function, which will enable
businesses to accept DCash via their websites, and the rollout of government to consumer
payments are also in the pipeline.
The free DCash app is available for download in the Google Play Store and the Apple App
