Latest Developments on Stablecoins and CBDCs in the United States

The Fed has been recently treading waters on CBDCs through Jerome Powell’s speeches, the Federal Reserve chairman. During an online event at Princeton University in New Jersey earlier in January, Powell expressed that the American central bank is in no rush to be the first to work in a CBDC.

Moreover, the Fed’s chairman stressed that it could “take years†before the U.S. Federal Reserve releases a central bank digital currency.

In December 2020, three U.S. lawmakers introduced a bill that will force private stablecoin issuers to obtain a banking charter (or license) and get approval from the Fed before they can issue a stablecoin.
