The Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States, Jerome Powell, said today that the country is working on a publisher’s report on digital currencies.

  • The Fed Chair said that the incoming report would focus on digital payments “broadly.” Per his words, this also includes stablecoins, crypto-assets, and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

We’re going to address digital payments broadly. It means stablecoins, it means crypto-assets, it means a CBDC. That whole group of issues and payment mechanisms, which we think is really in a critical point in terms of regulations.

  • Powell also reiterated that in the case of central bank digital currencies, the Fed would lay down questions for the public to address and assess the potential benefits and drawbacks.

  • His hope is that this will spark a major public consultation on the matter across many groups, including Congress.
