Along with the idea, also brought up, that this system of national currency, digital, can make use of private companies to falter, they also say that they should not be left in for full this task, due to failures in the payment systems existing, which requires the supervision of the public sector in meeting the needs of the client and protect you.”We have been thinking about how will be the payment systems that will be needed in the future and what will be, so that we have a great motivation to do all of this at this time,” he said.For his part, in regard to the comment about the nature monetary of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, Tom Mutton stated that these do not meet the necessary requirements to function as money, and which sustains a major interest in the future in the stable currencies or stablecoins and that however, this would have to adhere to the standards that the bank dictates about what is or is not money, “which is generally electronic money sent by reliable institutions or tickets and cash,” he says.Likewise, do not consider that cryptocurrencies are a threat to the british financial system, but to the investors who participate in them, position that is held by the Committee of Financial Policies from the year 2018 when issued such a document.

In a survey conducted among the participants of the webinar, where the question is about which element of the DLT would be of greater benefit to this national currency digital, was the winner the option of its programmability (33%) over other options such as decentralisation (28%), cryptography (15%) and the intercommunication of data (16%).It is callable however, they consider the private sector as a fundamental actor in the development of this national currency digital and are even open to the issuance of coins with private pre-regulation, which could facilitate the decentralization of the relative economy.Until the 12 of June of this year, you will receive responses to the comments made in this transmission web.
