It may not look like it's going to happen any time soon, but the Bank of Canada has quietly taken steps to control a such a concept, according to Blacklock's Reporter.

In Dec. 13 and Dec. 19 filings, the bank asserted ownership of "digital dollar," "digital Canadian dollar," and "central bank digital currency" in both official languages under the Trademarks Act.

No reason was given and no public hearing was held.
