Presentation: Digital Dollar: Privacy and Transparency Dilemma

This presentation examines concerns surrounding the implementation of a digital dollar, suggesting that contrary to popular belief, it could actually enhance privacy protection through proposed technical designs. These designs aim to provide anonymity for users and prevent government access to personal data and transaction details. However, implementing these privacy-preserving measures may conflict with existing AML/CFT laws, necessitating adjustments to financial institutions’ practices and modernization of regulatory requirements to balance privacy and public interest objectives.
