Discussion
Stable Coins and Monetary Policy: towards more instability?
Christopher Williams

  A vast number of important points are covered in this excellent article; I will address just one of them in an attempt to be brief. The greatest demand at this time is to help the international remittance business, where volume is down 20% and costs remain excessive at 7% average, but 15% in some areas. If we can bring those costs down to close to zero, or at least to the 3% SDG target, we can offset some of the harm the recession is already bringing to LDCs.  Stable coins can act as the means of payment while requiring all funds to be settled immediately into the fiat currency of their recipient. The efficiency of settlement can best be managed by central banks, but there are options where mobile networks can achieve some of the same price advantages.  The important point, as stressed in the article, is not to add pressure on LDC currencies by having balances being held in 'rival' currencies by their citizens.
