Goldilocks’ Comments and Global Economic News Saturday Evening 3-2-24

Good Evening , 

“Hong Kong is currently pursuing an expansion of the digital yuan’s application. It is also approaching the second phase of its own CBDC pilot program and completing consultations for stablecoin issuance.”

Do you remember a couple of months ago when we spoke of several global stablecoins that were being tested inside a sandbox with Hong Kong?

They are telling us that Hong Kong is in process of moving past the consultation process and ready to move into the implementation phase. This is the phase of regulatory development inside Global use case scenarios.

The e-HKD digital version of the Hong Kong dollar completed its first pilot testing phase in October 2023. Now, Hong Kong is telling us that they are moving into the retail sector.  This will include programmable payments, offline payments, and tokenized deposits.   Coin Speaker

CBI Announcement:

Shafaq News / The Iraqi Central Bank (CBI) affirmed on Saturday that it has provided five alternative currencies to the dollar for traders to use in purchasing goods from abroad, using each country’s currency through the bank.

“Most countries have said that settlement in national currencies is what the BRICS countries need. We are already a big BRICS family of 10 countries. Most countries supported the fact that it is necessary to build new mechanisms of settlements and shared the experience of developing digital currencies by central banks, the experience of building platforms, and participation in trials of various platforms,” Chebeskov said.   Modern Diplomacy

As the name suggests, a reverse ATM, or a cash-to-card kiosk, is the opposite of a conventional cash machine. A reverse ATM is a machine into which customers deposit cash and are given a debit card with the amount they have deposited credited onto the card. The customer can then use this card to complete a transaction through the merchant’s payment gateway—either in-store or online.

Currently, consumers will most commonly see cash-to-card kiosks in venues or establishments that want to encourage their customers to use cards instead of cash for transactions in their establishments. In return for cash, kiosks dispense stored-value cards that can be used to purchase goods or services in that establishment.   Unicorn Group
