A Key issue for Chairman Powell and Fed policymakers is how the crypto technology will fit into the current US banking system“–Paul Ebeling

Thursday, Chairman Powell said the Fed will publish a Key research paper this Summer on digital currency and seek public input, as he and his colleagues weigh how to proceed in this area.

“We are committed at the Federal Reserve to hearing a wide range of voices on this important issue before making any decision on whether and how to move forward with a US CBDC (central bank digital currencies),” he said in a statement

The announcement, during a week of volatility in cryptocurrencies, marks a shift in momentum on the CBDC topic at the Fed, which until now has mostly been a technological research project at its Boston branch.

Mr. Powell said he wants the Fed to play “a leading role” in the development of international standards. Central banks around the world are moving ahead with digital currencies which may give them a head-start in how standards develop.

Fitting In: A Key issue for Chairman Powell and other Fed officials is how the new technology might fit into the current US banking system, which already deals with electronic payments in several of ways.

Chairman Powell hopes the paper represents a thoughtful process saying, “Irrespective of the conclusion we ultimately reach, we expect to play a leading role in developing international standards for CBDCs, engaging actively with central banks in other jurisdictions as well as regulators and supervisors here in the United States throughout that process.”

Thursday, the US benchmark major stock market indexes finished at:
