The Fed Reserve is Taking A Cautionary Approach to USDC
While the Fed Reserve recognized the value of USDC, it is not rushing to issue it. As per its FAQs sheet, the Central Bank states it is fully engaged in the CBDC research and policy development.
The Fed Reserve wants to understand better the underlying technologies, potentials, and policy issues associated with the U.S. Dollar-pegged CBDC.
