“Project Mariana tested the cross-border trading and settlement of wholesale CBDCs. Successful trading and settlement of hypothetical euros, Singapore dollars and Swiss francs. DeFi elements tested in the project, specifically automated market makers, could form the basis for a new generation of financial market infrastructures.”

It is important to keep in mind that this is wholesale CBDCs.  

It is the retail CBDCs that is having a difficult time being passed through Congress.

Unless there is a solution for the privacy issue in retail CBDC, the adoption of CBDC for the retail market has a long way to go.

Abstract:

In this paper, we outline tokenization, which is a new and rapidly growing financial innovation in crypto-asset markets, and we discuss potential benefits and financial stability implications. Tokenization refers to the process of constructing digital representations (crypto tokens) for non-crypto assets (reference assets). As we discuss below, tokenizations create interconnections between the digital asset ecosystem and the traditional financial system. At sufficient scale, tokenized assets could transmit volatility from crypto asset markets to the markets for the crypto token’s reference assets.

Vietnam: Technical Assistance Report

Summary: This technical assistance (TA) report presents the outcomes of the scoping mission of a new TA project aimed at building capacity in macroeconomic analysis and forecasting in the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI). The MPI is establishing a Core Working Group (CWG) under MPI’s coordination that will carry out macroeconomic analysis using Macroeconomic Projection Tool (MPT) and integrate the results in the policy-making process.

Based on the mission’s findings and assessment, the mission team and the authorities agreed on a three-year TA action plan that includes training components during the early stage of the project. During Phase 1 (2023-24), the activities would focus on developing and operating the Macro-Framework Foundation Tool (MFT) and the Public Debt Dynamics Tool (DDT) to produce macroeconomic analysis and forecasting.

 Depending on progress, the MPT could be enhanced during Phase 2 (2025-26) and the tentative plan is to develop Comprehensive Adaptive Expectation Model (CAEM). The CWG will take the lead in implementing the activities and targets identified in the TA action plan and will be supported by the IMF TA team.

GOLD & BATTLE FOR CONTROL?

A tug-of-war for the CONTROL over #gold pricing is starting to play out.

The countries of the Eastern world have been amassing physical gold for numerous years, while the majority of Western nations continue to only add to their debt pile.

Last year, Russia’s Finance Ministry said it was critical to create the new Moscow World Standard to normalize the functioning of the precious metals industry and have an alternative to the LBMA.

This week, we saw a surge in gold prices in China, leading to a record premium over international prices, exceeding $100 an ounce.

“Isaac does not give clues.
Isaac gives cold, hard, dry facts.
It is established fact that Isaac is the owner of many types of Historic Bonds, and deals directly with the primary purchasers of the Bonds.
When Isaac knows that money has moved, he will tell us.
What Isaac will NOT do is speculate, and/or give mere hopium.”  Bernie
