Blockchain Webinar Series | On stable ground? Exploring the latest trends and legal issues Stablecoins and Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs)

15 Juni 2021

Stablecoins are a type of crypto asset whose value is tied to an outside asset, such as the U.S. dollar or gold. While stablecoins have become increasingly used to manage volatility and facilitate transfers of crypto assets, despite their name, stablecoins are certainly not free of risk. Our panel explores the benefits and shortcomings of stablecoins, and legal issues that relate to these digital products.

Our panel also explores the new and emerging world of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and discuss legal issues as well as broader policy implications of such assets.
