Digital Currency Developments: Stablecoins and CBDCs

Central banks worldwide are researching, developing, and even issuing digital money in the form of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

This month’s Chicago Payments Forum will feature a report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s 2021 Payments Symposium. The symposium will feature updates from the U.S. Federal Reserve and the central banks of Bahamas and Sweden, plus stablecoin issuer Circle. We’ll also be joined by a digital currency startup.

Register for the Chicago Payments Forum monthly meetup 4:30-6:00 pm CDT on Wed. October 6 for an engaging conversation on digital currencies.

We look forward to seeing you!

If you are interested in presenting, contact Collin Canright at 312-281-6262.
