Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell to Speak About Digital Currencies Today


As part of a panel on “Cross-Border Payments—A Vision for the Future,” at the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) annual meeting, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will speak about digital currencies Monday.

The panel will start at 8 a.m. ET on Oct. 19.

During this virtual event, while discussing the potential solutions to enhance the cross-border payments, the “benefits and risks” of digital currencies and their macro-financial implications will also be covered.

“On Monday, Jay Powell gives his input on central bank digital currencies at the IMF talk listed above. Central Bank digital currencies are coming, and they will change everything… They are coming under stealth of X-border payments but it means so much more…” said former hedge fund manager Raoul Pal, CEO of Real Vision Group.

It is, however, not mentioned if Powell would be sharing his thoughts on a digital dollar.

Other panelists include Agustín Carstens, general manager of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS); Ahmed Abdulkarim Alkholifey Governor of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority; and Nor Shamsiah, governor of Bank Negara Malaysia with IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva as the moderator.
