I have not much idea about what’s going to happen with the central bank digital currency. But there are many predictions that say that these currencies might kill bitcoin. But the central bank will allow all the businesses to directly make e-payments. Instead of panicking we should just wait and see what will happen.

I agree with you that this will weaken bitcoin. I also think it may be the currency of the future as it will have a strong positive impact on the environment. Waiting and seeing the reaction is the best option.
As a bank employee, I take digital currency very seriously. Because I work with her every day. People are constantly taking loans or somehow making cryptocurrency transfers in my bank. Most often, it is bitcoin. That's why I treat digital money like ordinary money. Yes, I agree. Just a few years ago, very few people knew about digital money at all. But now, when cryptocurrency is in great demand, it is simply impossible not to know about it. Although probably if I hadn't stumbled upon a vacant vacancy of a bank employee on the platform at the time, then I would be so well versed in cryptocurrency.
I think CBDC as legal standing to regulated money circulation will become a big barrier for another payment gateway or cryptocurrency, however, how the public responds to them also will become a reason to determine adoption if CBDC has bad technology maybe will become a problem for the user, but if they having better technology maybe will make currency getting more flexible
I think as people become more familiar with crypto they will be more keen to keep hold of their private keys so they 'own' the crypto. I would think putting it into a bank is akin to a centralised exchange where they hold it for you and your don't have the private keys. Flip side of course is that they probably put millions a year into cyber security.
If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.
As far as I concerned, CBDC is indeed reasonably similar to the bills in your wallet. However, traditional methods of payment are too tedious nowadays. I guess digital representation of that value would be much more convenient and efficient. If a significant number of the bank's clients decide to hold CBDC instead of having a bank account like today, the bank would have less capital to give out loans, which would, in turn, make loans more expensive and potentially even not viable. The implication is that a thoughtless implementation of CBDC without mitigating actions could have a drastic and adverse effect on the economy.
Now almost the central bank has a concept to making digital currency issued by CBDC, maybe this can make cryptocurrency weaken, but yes let's see what happens later, the world-changing to digital payment, but I think cash money like paper and coin still needed.
