On April 8th, 2021, we sat down for a conversation with international foreign policy and digital currency experts on the future of digital currencies and how the United States and its allies plan to work with their respective central banks to usher in a new era of the future money. We explored the opportunities, risks, and future geo-economic implications of central bank backed digital currencies, as well as looked to answer questions like: - What timeframe are U.S. policymakers targeting for rolling out a digital dollar? What are the key logistical hurdles? - Do regulators and central bankers in the U.S. and Europe believe there is a place for digital currencies that are backed by central banks and other non-fiat digital assets like Bitcoin? - Is there a size or “market cap” that Bitcoin could reach or has already reached where regulators decide too much capital would be destroyed by regulating it out of existence?
