Stablecoins are a new class of cryptocurrencies that are backed by a reserve asset to maintain price stability (“Stablecoins”). Stablecoins have been gaining traction as they attempt to offer the best of both worlds – the instant processing and security or privacy of payments of cryptocurrencies, and the volatility-free stable valuations of fiat currencies.

Central Bank Digital Currencies (“CBDCs”) are introduced by state governments and their central banks in attempt to limit the market dominance of Stablecoins and retain monetary control.

We have published an article providing:

  • an introduction to Stablecoins and CBDCs, including information on their main features, types and most well-known examples;
  • an overview of the main benefits, risks and other considerations associated with Stablecoins and CBDCs; and
  • a summary of the most recent policy announcements made by various Governments around the world in respect of Stablecoins and CBDCs.

A preview of our article is available here: Stablecoins & Central Bank Digital Currencies: The Future of Cryptocurrencies – Preview.
