Stablecoins, Tokenized Deposits and the Future of Private Money

Episode 13,   Jan 25, 02:10 PM

In Episode 13 of the Poundcast, we speak to Elise Soucie, Director of Policy and Regulation at Global Digital Finance (GDF). We discuss how the landscape of new forms of digital money is evolving and take a deeper dive into stablecoins - asking what is a stablecoin, who might want to issue one and why? What is the difference between tokenized deposits and stablecoins and what’s the potential for innovation? How do recent regulatory proposals in the UK impact the potential for innovation? And lastly - but perhaps most importantly of all - how can regulation be optimised for genuine innovation around stablecoins to make the UK really attractive as a destination?
