Swedish lawmakers want the government and parliament to take over the review on the potential for a digital krona from the central bank as the nation explores how to cope with the fast dwindling of the use of cash.

On Thursday, Riksbank Governor Stefan Ingves and Deputy Governor Cecilia Skingsley visited the Finance Committee in a closed hearing to go through their work on the e-krona.
