David Andolfatto, economist and senior vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, joins Pedro da Costa, senior reporter at Market News International, to give a peek behind the curtain into the Fed’s monetary policy at this unique market juncture.

Since the rise of digital currencies and cryptocurrencies, central banks are considering the role these new forms of money may play in our evolving digital economy. One of the ideas studied is the notion of a central bank digital currency. While people and companies can hold central bank liabilities in the form of cash, only licensed banks have access to digital cash accounts with central banks.

We’re joined by David Andolfatto, VP of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. David was previously on the podcast to discuss his

Many people think of Bitcoin as the ultimate contender against the power of central banks, most importantly the Federal Reserve System. But that is certainly not the only way that cryptocurrencies and the blockchain can be used and one particularly interesting idea is that central banks could issue their own cryptocurrencies.

To discuss how this could be done and what the consequences could be we were joined by David Andolfatto, a Vice President of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and a professor of Economics at Simon Fraser University.

Topics covered included:
– What makes good money? How does Bitcoin fare in comparison?
– What is Fedcoin and how could it work?
– Why the

David Andolfatto, Bitcoin and Beyond, Conclusion

St. Louis Fed Economist David Andolfatto provides a look at the evolution of money and the long tradition of new currencies competing with old ones. Here, he also discusses the bitcoin competitors. One of the benefits of these new, virtual currencies is their ability (and desire) to be global. Perhaps, he says, the most important aspect of this technology revolution is the threat of entry into the money and payments system. This will force traditional institutions—including central banks—to either adapt or die. So how will this new wave affect central banks? Well-run central banks, Andolfatto argues, should welcome the emerging competition. There is room, he says, for beneficial coexistence—perhaps, establishing a blend of price-level stability and low-cost payments.

David Andolfatto, Legal and Illegal Trading of Bitcoin

Does bitcoin facilitate illegal trading? Sure, St. Louis Fed Economist David Andolfatto says, but so does the U.S. dollar, gold, etc. Bitcoin transactions travel wallet to wallet, where the wallet identities are disguised. In this sense, using bitcoins is like using U.S. cash in facilitating illegal trades. On the other hand, he points out, wallet histories are publically available (unlike U.S. cash transaction histories). He also notes that bitcoins support a great deal of legal trading.

Can bitcoin be regulated? Some countries have issued an outright ban on the use of bitcoin and other virtual currencies. Can bitcoins be taxed? In the U.S., the IRS has recently ruled that, for tax purposes, bitcoins will be treated as property and not as currency. For example, when you buy then sell
