Cryptocurrency is speedily integrating with nations’ economies and the global economic process as it is now an accepted legal tender in a country. Judging by this development, it is clear that the future of the global economy would surely feature cryptos in a major capacity. There are even predictions that the nearest future would see crypt currency replacing fiat currency. It is with this view that the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), insists that central banks of nations must be able to uphold stability in the financial sector even with the prospect of digital currencies.
For this to happen, these central banks must prepare for the coming of central bank digital currencies (CBDC), just as they provide in the case of fiat currency in their respective countries. According to BIS, central banks would have to join the present evolution of the global financial scene which is largely characterized by digitization. For them to do this, their money would also have to assume the digital format without which full integration would not be possible. Central banks are also urged to hasten the designs for the CBDC as by default they are already behind schedule. This is because the project would take years to develop while stablecoins and crypto tokens are already here.
According to the BIS, a cryptocurrency that is regarded as a trending financial innovation would need a well-designed framework for it to be fully integrated into global financial and monetary systems. This is where the CBDCs come in as they would provide legal backing and structure for the placement of crypto assets in the financial systems of countries. For the development of these CBDCs, there would be a need for in-depth research and deeper analysis to ensure financial stability when finally developed.
Stablecoins And Decentralized Finance
Seeing that crypto is the world’s future, the place of both stablecoins and DeFis cannot be undermined as they are highly strategic in the sustenance of a digitized financial system. This is the reason behind the strict regulations and restrictions imposed on DeFi exchanges by various global regulators. The prospect of mass adoption of these systems is imminent so security and safety have to be guaranteed before that happens to ensure financial system sustainability. As there are projections for stablecoins and DeFis to become new banking models, there is a need to ensure that their framework is functional and secured.
Impact of CBDCs on The Global Market
There are certain loopholes in both stablecoins and decentralized finance systems that can eventually lead to a collapse upon mass adoption. This is why CBDCs are proposed as solutions to these challenges as they will only be issued after certain objectives have been met. These digital currencies would also have consumer protection as a priority while user satisfaction is considered too.
They are to be designed in a way the people can easily use them thus providing flexibility, resilience, and safety. The development of CBDCs is a collective project which would bring together various central banks in the world.
