Rapid growth in digital dollar stablecoins has led to increased interest from traditional fintechs, banks and financial institutions in supporting digital currency. In recent weeks, Acting Head of the OCC at the US Treasury Department, Brian Brooks, issued guidance to national banks that they can custody crypto assets on behalf of customers, leading banks around the country to explore how they can leverage the benefits of this breakthrough technology.
All of this is part of a broader and rapid shift in the dialogue around digital dollars, the role of cryptocurrency and public blockchain networks, and how this technology transformation can be leveraged in the US and global financial system.
This coming week on the Money Movement we are honoured to host Comptroller Brooks, the leading regulator of banks in the United States, for a discussion on digital dollar stablecoins and their role in the US financial system.
