The world is becoming more digital in a multitude of ways—one of the most prevalent being with money transactions. I sit down and speak with best selling author Richard Turrin about what some of these changes look like, and why this is a game changer for the big economies—starting with China. Tune in for more, and visit the links below to access Richard Turrin’s main website and book.

-Everyone seems to be getting into crypto
-There are very few cash transactions taking place in China
-Are digital currencies going to completely replace cash/standard currency?
-China is a cashless society in the big cities
-China is launching the world’s first central bank digital currency (CBDC) for a major economy
-A CBDC is not a cryptocurrency; it is a digital representation of paper money
-These transactions are free
-This also gets rid of the middle man—no credit processing needs to be done
-central digital currencies can be built on blockchain, but blockchain usually can’t sustain them in a large economy
-Central bank digital currency is issued by the central banks
-Stable coins are a cryptocurrency and they are a special kind of cryptocurrency that is tied to the value of the dollar
-There will be stable coin companies that are regulated similarly to banks
-With a lot of crypto coins, an unlimited amount can be created
-The new version of stable coins will be great
