The Federal Reserve found out that a CBDC could provide a “safe, digital payment option for individuals and businesses, and provide faster payment options between countries.”

A CBDC is a digital asset linked to the value of a fiat currency, the US dollar that is used by a country’s central bank.

Meanwhile, the report also indicated that CBDCs could pose some risks, including risks to financial stability.

The development of a CBDC would change the financial industry’s market structure, change reserve management programs and monetary policies, and have a significant impact on privacy and security.

The Federal Reserve’s published paper aims at exploring the pros and cons of a digital currency, but not to take a stance on whether the CBDC should be launched.
