Leading The Discussion On A U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency

The Digital Dollar Project is a nonprofit organization created to encourage research and public discussion on the potential advantages and challenges of a U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) — or a “digital dollar.” The Project is focused on convening private sector thought leaders and proposes possible models to support the public sector through pilot experimentation and working groups. The DDP will identify options for a potential CBDC solution to help enhance monetary policy effectiveness and financial stability; provide needed scalability, security and privacy in retail, wholesale and international payments; and integrate with existing financial infrastructures.

“A digital dollar would help future-proof the greenback and allow individuals and global enterprises to make payments in dollars irrespective of space and time. We are launching the Digital Dollar Project to catalyze a digital, tokenized U.S. currency that would coexist with other Federal Reserve liabilities and serve as a settlement medium to meet the demands of the new digital world and a cheaper, faster and more inclusive global financial system.”

J. Chris Giancarlo, former chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and co-founder of the Digital Dollar Foundation
