Digital dollars and central bank digital currencies (CBDC) are in the spotlight, and questions abound as to the potential design, availability and functionality of a CBDC in the United States. This deck tracks U.S. congressional legislative efforts that may lead to the creation of a U.S. digital dollar, and we will update it as debates continue and proposals are refined. The deck explains digital dollars/CBDC and analyzes the key design features of the bills that have been introduced to date, with links to key scholarly and government sources.
