I've been compiling a list of Crypto Links for a while and I realized I could share this with the community. I'll try to keep this updated. If Real Vision could make this community editable that might be a useful feature. If you comment or message me I'll work it back into the master list. Or maybe we can start a google docs or google sheets.

Uncategorized (for now)
This topic is currently what I view as one of the most important things to pay attention to these days.
How will the new Central Bank Digital Dollars affect us? In this report from the Cleveland Fed I highlight what I believe to be the key points moving forward. Namely it seems to me that policymakers and the Fed are intent in a future world of Monetary and Fiscal Policy where they have more direct control over the velocity of money (which grants them more powers to control inflation). This also supports the hypothesis that commercial banks will continue to suffer a slow decline.
The source of the information can be found here:
The following bullet points were taken directly from the link above:
- Increase money velocity by cutting out the Commercial Banks:
- Legislation has proposed that each American have an account at the Fed in which digital dollars could be deposited
- without the need for commercial bank involvement via direct issuance into the end-users’ digital wallets
- quicker and more ubiquitous payments
- No more anonymity + taxes on every transaction:
- without the anonymity of physical currency
Here is a paragraph excerpt from the relevant section.
Central Bank Digital Currencies
The experience with pandemic emergency payments has brought forward an idea that was already gaining increased attention at central banks around the world, that is, central bank digital currency (CBDC). Legislation has proposed that each American have an account at the Fed in which digital dollars could be deposited, as liabilities of the Federal Reserve Banks, which could be used for emergency payments. Other proposals would create a new payments instrument, digital cash, which would be just like the physical currency issued by central banks today, but in a digital form and, potentially, without the anonymity of physical currency. Depending on how these currencies are designed, central banks could support them without the need for commercial bank involvement via direct issuance into the end-users’ digital wallets combined with central-bank-facilitated transfer and redemption services.8 The demand for and use of such instruments need further consideration in order to evaluate whether such a central bank digital currency would allow for quicker and more ubiquitous payments in times of emergency and more generally. In addition, a range of potential risks and policy issues surrounding central bank digital currency need to be better understood, and the costs and benefits evaluated.
The Federal Reserve has been researching issues raised by central bank digital currency for some time. The Board of Governors has a technology lab that has been building and testing a range of distributed ledger platforms to understand their potential benefits and tradeoffs.9 Staff members from several Reserve Banks, including Cleveland Fed software developers, are contributing to this effort. The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston is also engaged in a multiyear effort, working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to experiment with technologies that could be used for a central bank digital currency. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has established an innovation center, in partnership with the Bank for International Settlements, to identify and develop in-depth insights into critical trends and financial technology of relevance to central banks.10 Experimentation like this is an important ingredient in assessing the benefits and costs of a central bank digital currency, but does not signal any decision by the Federal Reserve to adopt such a currency. Issues raised by central bank digital currency related to financial stability, market structure, security, privacy, and monetary policy all need to be better understood.
