Stablecoins have the potential to promote financial inclusion and bring efficiencies to payment systems. However, they also challenge the effectiveness of current supervisory frameworks and raise questions about the future of the international monetary system. Brent McIntosh, adjunct senior fellow for international economics and finance at the Council on Foreign Relations and between 2019-2021 under secretary of the US Treasury for international affairs, discusses the response of national authorities and multilateral institutions to the rise of stablecoins, their involvement in promoting or hampering innovative payment systems, the wider geopolitical implications, and the potential threat to the monetary hegemony of the US dollar.
