Play β€’ 39 min

Innovation has been essential to creating the modern lifestyle many enjoy today, but requires a risk appetite and a willingness to let markets express consumer preferences that emerge in a free and open society. Blockchain networks and decentralized platforms are creating a new set of conditions for digital finance transactions that can broadly increase inclusion and quality of service, and policymakers around the world are carefully considering the path forward.

Blockchain networks and decentralized finance can help improve or supplant existing financial infrastructure, but will need support from both sides of the aisle to truly unlock the benefits of digital finance and programmable money.
