Digital assets are caught in the cross-currents of regulation and innovation. Regulators are focused on investor protection and financial stability, while innovators are advancing new digital payments and investment products. Nearly 90% of central banks are also exploring central bank digital currencies. Several key regulatory initiatives are underway in the US, including at the Treasury on stablecoins, the White House on a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies and digital assets, and the Federal Reserve board on the merits of a digital dollar. All of these will impact how innovative technologies can be used in the evolving digital financial ecosystem.
Timothy Massad, former Commodity Futures Trading Commission chair and US assistant Treasury secretary for financial stability under President Barack Obama, discusses these developments with leading practitioners from the finance and technology communities.
