    Episode 13: Banking Meets Stablecoins

    Episode 13: Banking Meets Stablecoins

    This week on the Money Movement we'll be talking about how banking is meeting stablecoins. This past week brought big news from the US Treasury OCC who provided fresh guidelines for banks, allowing for them to hold and custody crypto assets, including stablecoins. This is a major signal that traditional financial institutions are going to be getting into the crypto and stablecoin space. At Circle, we’re seeing accelerated interest from neobanks, fintechs and global banks on adopting digital currency as a payment and settlement medium, and expect this to be a major theme in the coming year. About the ShowThe global economy is experiencing unprecedented challenges and change.

    Episode 12: Financial Privacy, Digital Currency and Stablecoin Payments

    Episode 12: Financial Privacy, Digital Currency and Stablecoin Payments

    One of the major issues that has vexed policy makers and regulators, and is fundamental to the growth and adoption of crypto currency and blockchains is issues around financial privacy. How can we be assured of our privacy with blockchain payments? Are there risks of government and law enforcement overreach? On the flip side, what are the boundaries of financial privacy for individuals and what risks do privacy preserving technologies pose to governments? What about corporate and commercial privacy — public blockchains are transparent, how can a company adopt this and not disclose private transaction activity as a firm? What are the technology and policy answers to these questions? Live on YouTube Thursday, July 16 at 1pm EDT The crypto and blockchain industry have a long history of engagement with policy makers in DC, dating back to 2013 when the Senate held its first public hearings on virtual currency. This week on the Money Movement we are joined by three guests who have been at the forefront of working the digital currency scene in DC. Joining us are Perianne Boring, the founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, Kristin Smith, the Executive Director of the Blockchain Association, and John Collins, founding partner at FS Vector, a premier advisory firm in the blockchain policy space.

    The rapid rise of digital currency has driven accelerated engagement with policy makers and regulators in Washington.

What’s the role of the public sector vs. the private sector?And, how can we learn from the lessons of the past thirty years in the development of other internet standards, open source software and decentralized internet infrastructure?
