US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell today indicated that central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), such as a potential “digital dollar”, wouldn’t replace cash.

  • The Fed is still researching a digital dollar.

  • “One of the three key principles highlighted in the report is that a CBDC needs to coexist with cash and other types of money in a flexible and innovative payment system,”

  • CBDCs are different from decentralized digital assets like Bitcoin because they are controlled by one entity: a central bank.

  • CBDCs have two basic designs: “retail” for peer-to-peer payments, and “wholesale,” intended for banks to buy and sell financial assets and to replace Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) systems.
