A nonprofit organization, The Digital Dollar Project was created to encourage public discussion on the potential advantages and challenges of a U.S. CBDC — or a “digital dollar.” Through research and pilot programs, the DDP explores options for a 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, including U.S. Federal Reserve-related projects.
DDP views the infrastructure underpinning the U.S. dollar as a critically important public good and believes that upgrading this infrastructure will provide current and future generations enhanced flexibility, optionality, stability, and prosperity. As such, DDP work is conducted in a highly collaborative and open-source manner.
