The development of blockchains to facilitate more complex economic activity brings focus to the forms of digital money that may be needed to support blockchain payments at scale. Deposit tokens could become a widely used form of money in the digital asset ecosystem, just as commercial bank money in the form of bank deposits makes up over 90% of circulating money today. Deposit tokens are the equivalent of existing bank deposits but recorded on a blockchain, interoperable with traditional banking infrastructures and protected by the same regulatory safeguards that already support commercial bank deposits.
Throughout these sessions, we discuss the potential and policy considerations of deposit tokens based on the findings of our joint report with Onyx by J.P. Morgan, Deposit tokens – A Foundation for Stable Digital Money.
