PwC Partner: Central Banks Should Leave Cryptocurrencies to Corporations like Facebook, JPMorgan

Pauline Adam Kalfon, a partner in the division of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in France, has submitted that it should be the private organization, such as Facebook and JPMorgan, who is involved in the digital currency issuing process (in this cases, encrypted currencies).

But PwC France’s Kalfon believes that central banks ought (yet) not to experiment with the issue of their own Central bank digital currency (CBDC). The release of a CBDC might presumably pose unforeseen risks, as cryptos still are developing at an early stage.

With governments potentially reissuing FIA currencies in the form of digital assets and cryptocurrencies, Kalfon does not rule out a future monetary tokenization potential for Central Banks, a move proposed for inflation – stricken countries, such as Venezuela. Instead, Kalfon says it observes the obstacles to digitally equivalent transitional assets, allowing cryptocurrency to be “tested by companies.”

Kalfon, who previously worked as a consultant to Deloitte, which is also amongst the ‘ Big Four ‘ professional services companies in the world, suggested that central banks should consider examining CBDCs – only after ‘combat – tested’ [large] companies were cryptocurrencies tested.

Kalfon said it would be an interesting choice rather than central bankers issuing digital currencies to leave corporations such as Facebook, and JPMorgan the tokenization of fiat currencies.

J.P. in the middle of February. In its announcement, J.P. announced the launch of its “JPM Coin” cryptocurrency Morgan Chase, the biggest bank. The management of Morgan noted it had developed its crypto because, in the foreseeable future, blockchain – based digital assets would be widely used. Morgan,

“it was necessary to transfer money in the same dizzying way that smart contracts closed rather than relying on old technology such as wire transfers.”

In particular, Kalfon recommended to the Bank of France that the economic environment of the country is even more precarious to such a transition, not testing fiat – a – cryptocurrencies in advance of any other.

Bruno Le Maire, French Economic Minister, warned initially of the speculative risks associated with cryptocurrencies in January 2018. By the year’s end, he had relaxed his position, recognizing the potential behind the blockchain, in favor of pragmatic regulation.


Kalfon’s remarks will have the most interesting outcome if, among other things, Facebook and JP Morgan successfully implement digital assets on their platform. In this circumstance, central banks may be even more obliged to look at the potential for fiat emissions through blockchain and digital currencies.
