The Future of Money: Public Perspectives


Tuesday 9th May


| David Birch, (15mb Ltd)

| John Kiff, (Satoshi Capital Advisors)


As the world becomes increasingly digital, there is growing interest in the potential of digital currencies and CBDCs to reshape the financial landscape. These new forms of money have the potential to facilitate faster, cheaper, and more secure transactions, while also promoting innovation in payments, financial inclusion and cross-border payments.


In this session, we have the privilege of hearing from two leading experts in this field, John Kiff (Satoshi Capital Advisors) and author and commentator David Birch (15Mb Ltd). Through their wealth of experience and knowledge, John and David will explore whether or not there is a case for new forms of digital currencies and how they could help address pressing issues in the financial system. We expect to have a view about how the future of money is being reshaped, and what benefits and drawbacks the public may perceive in these new systems.


Without any doubt, this discussion is essential for senior representatives of central and commercial banks, regulators, and policymakers who are looking to stay ahead of the curve and help shape the future of money.


The Session covered:

  • The use cases for digital currencies likes CBDCs and stablecoins
  • The benefits and drawbacks with various digital currencies compared to existing payment systems and traditional currencies.
  • What needs to be done to help promote financial inclusion and facilitate cross-border payments
  • The measures that can be taken to address privacy and security concerns when developing and implementing a CBDC and other forms of digital money
  • How jurisdictions can reach the sweet spot of rCBDC adoption that doesn’t crowd out other payment instruments or cause an unbearable migration of deposits
