Future outlook of stablecoins
CFTC commissioner Brian Quentenz believes that stablecoins must be viewed as a future liquid exchange medium. The tokenization process can be employed to help stablecoins serve liquid medium functions. They can also enable coherent smart contract implementation.
The CFTC stablecoin meeting demonstrates how the United States government is slowly exploring the possibility of a digital dollar. These coins can help study the future digital finance policies, consumer protection regulations, and monetary integrity.
