About this Episode

gm. Simon Taylor hosted a live onstage panel as part of Empire Startups New York FinTech Week! Originally recorded for Fintech Insider podcast, the conversation was so good we just had to share it here too.

Earlier this year, we saw an executive order signed on the desk of the White House calling for research and development on a US CBDC.

What was once a theoretical possibility has now been directly decreed by the President himself.

So, today we’re talking about how this executive order will fit into the history books, what we know about CBDCs currently, what the challenges are still to overcome and what the future may hold.

This week's guests include:

  • Cuy Sheffield, Head of Crypto, Visa
  • Carmelle Cadet, Founder & CEO, EMTECH
  • Jennifer Lassiter, Executive Director, The Digital Dollar Project
