Electronic money is defined above all as prepayment followed by storage of “traditional” money on another medium. In the true sense of the word, therefore, money is not created, but a dematerialized instrument of traditional money is issued to facilitate transactions in a digital economy.
Electronic money is not, in itself, a new type of currency, creating a third category after fiat and scriptural money. It's a new cashless payment instrument used to carry out a payment transaction.
Electronic money can be used in two main contexts:
Electronic money is defined as "a monetary value that is stored in electronic form, including magnetic form, representing a claim on the issuer, which is issued against the remittance of funds for the purposes of payment transactions as defined in article L. 133-3". [du CMF] and which is accepted by a natural or legal person other than the electronic money issuer" (Article L. 315-1, I CMF).
Since the "Electronic Money Directive 1" of March 2000, electronic money has been a payment instrument resulting from the practice of dematerialized exchanges.
Initially little used, its use and scope were reinforced by the Electronic Money Directive 2 of September 16, 2009, then transposed into French law in January 2013.
As e-money is governed by the French Monetary and Financial Code, it can only be issued under the supervision of credit or e-money institutions approved by the ACPR ("Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution de la Banque de France").
