Making cryptocurrencies into money

Friday, November 11, 2022 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMEastern Standard Time

Title: Making cryptocurrencies into money

Summary: The creator of Bitcoin envisaged it as a “peer to peer electronic cash system”. But today cryptocurrencies are still little used as a means of payment. Instead, usage of cryptocurrency is overwhelmingly for speculative purposes. I will discuss whether there is a future for cryptocurrency as money, whether that is in the form of tradable currencies, stablecoins, or central bank digital currency.

Speaker Bio: 
Peter Zimmerman is a research economist in the Research Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. His research interests are in financial market infrastructure and banking. Recently, he has focused on fintech and issues around cryptocurrencies as payments instruments.
