Digital money entail risks and benefits

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said the push by central banks to develop digital currencies entails both risks and benefits at the global and local levels, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
 
According to a new report by the international financial body, rapid progress in digital technologies has increased the likelihood of adopting new forms of digital currencies for both domestic and international transactions.
 
These include central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and so-called global stable coins (GSCs) proposed by big technological companies, the report said.
 
It said these will increase competition, reduce transaction costs, expand access to services, and encourage financial participation via mobile devices.
 
"CBDCs and GSCs could make cross-border payments less costly and make it easier for households and small firms to have access to financial services," the report said.
 
But it added it can also reduce the ability of local governments to conduct monetary policy and control domestic financial conditions.
 
"Digital money adoption across borders also entails risks and policy challenges," it said, noting this could increase pressures for currency substitution.
 
Without appropriate measures, foreign CBDCs and GSCs could facilitate illicit flows, it said, adding this will make it difficult for regulatory authorities to enforce exchange restrictions and capital flow management measures.
 
The scale of digital money adoption will rely on strong network effects but will also depend on design features, country circumstances, legal frameworks, and regulation, the report said. (Anadolu)
