[i3] FICC Luncheon on Cryptocurrencies

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has been keeping a keen eye on developments in the cryptocurrency industry for many years and Tony Richards, Head of Payments Policy at the RBA, presented the central bank’s views on these developments, explained why it is unlikely to see an electronic Australian dollar and what other technological developments might prove more functional, including the efforts being made with the New Payments Platform. This luncheon was co-hosted with MFS Investment Management and took place in Sydney on 8 August 2018.
