Kryptomoney chief says CBDCs are the most important trend for the next decade
Recently, Visa’s head of cryptomontage stated that the Central Bank’s Digital Currencies, or CBDC, may be one of the most important trends in the next decade.
Cuy Sheffield, who heads the crypto coin projects of credit card giant Visa, tweeted that:
„As governments evaluate CBDCs, the path they choose to take will have important implications for privacy, monetary sovereignty, geopolitics and financial inclusion, as well as the global adoption of cryptomoney and Bitcoin.
Sheffield has long been an advocate of CBDCs. In May, he said central banks are not interested in digital consumer currency solutions.
Visa has not been shy in its interest in digital currencies. Recall that the company filed a digital currency patent application earlier this year.
