This innovation is as a result of partnership between Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and the Digital Dollar Foundation, the Digital Dollar Project was created to encourage analysis and public dialogue on the potential benefits of a CBDC — or a “digital dollar.” The Project will determine options for a CBDC resolution to help improve financial policy effectiveness and monetary stability; provide wanted scalability, safety and privateness in retail, wholesale and worldwide payments; and combine with existing financial infrastructures, together with U.S. Federal Reserve-related projects.

The Digital Dollar Project’s 22 new advisory group members — a listing of whom could be discovered at — include distinguished business people, economists, former regulators, expertise luminaries and educators who symbolize a cross-section of distinguished consultants within the fields of banking, capital markets, worldwide standards, anti-money laundering, monetary policy, nationwide safety, and privateness and property rights.

The Digital Dollar Project will discover design options and approaches for a CBDC through a deliberative process, together with stakeholder meetings, round table discussions and open boards. The Undertaking is headed by J. Christopher (“Chris”) Giancarlo, former chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC); Charles Giancarlo, an entrepreneur, investor and executive who’s presently CEO of Pure Storage; and Daniel Gorfine, founder and CEO of Gattaca Horizons LLC, adjunct professor of Legislation on the Georgetown University Law Center, and former chief innovation officer at CFTC.

“The insights and experience of the brand new advisory group members will likely be invaluable as we work collectively to help make the dollar a more effective and smarter currency in an more and more digital world economic system,” said Chris Giancarlo. “Welcoming these first advisors and holding our first official meeting — held virtually — were critical aims for the project. We look ahead to having others be a part of as significant contributors to our efforts.”

Accenture is the lead architect and expertise innovation partner of the not-for-profit Digital Dollar Foundation, which was launched earlier this year.

“We consider {that a} Central Bank Digital Currency will likely be an essential building block for a more inclusive, efficient and effective global financial system,” said David Treat, a senior managing director at Accenture who leads its Blockchain practice globally. “This spectacular group of advisory members will help us chart a course for the modernisation of our financial techniques.”

The Project’s subsequent step will likely be to develop a white paper proposing core elements and the worth proposition of a digital dollar, which the group plans to launch within the next two months.
