As the popularity of crypto increases, many central banks have been discussing the possibility of either banning or c-existing with these new-age currencies. The U.S. The Federal Reserve recently published a paper that raised issues of the need to adapt the U.S. dollars to current times.
This was the research that they have been conducting over the past year and how CBDCs will be the government gateway to crypto. On the other side of the world, the Central Bank of Russia has suggested banning all crypto-related activities too.
They recently put a blanket ban on all cryptocurrencies in the country and now aim to stop the mining and other operations too. Both superpowers have strikingly different views on these DeFi techs.
The US is the more liberal one has been contemplating adding USDT and maintaining reserves that will serve as a backup to the cryptocurrency. The paper published by the U.S. covers all the risks and benefits of a U.S. CBDC. The privacy and security of the common folk is the main issue.
This means that the US has been warming up to the idea of these cryptocurrencies co-existing with the dollar in their current form. As the world warms up to these new DeFi techs, the USA will be a world leader as usual and dictate how things are done.
If you have been planning to get into these new-age technologies, right now is the best time to do so. Soon their price might just be out of reach for most people.
