Coinbase’s legal chief, Brian Brooks, come out with opinion that private sector should lead in developing America’s digital currency.
He argued in Fortune essay published on Monday, that whether private sector is the best corporation to build a much-debated digital U.S. dollar,or U.S government that the one should create the digital dollar.
“The best path forward is one that harnesses our country’s remarkable capacity for innovation and also reflects government’s historical practice of setting broad guide rails for private innovation within the financial system. But there is no more need for the government to control the blockchain policy of stablecoin issuers than there is for the government to dictate the technology used by privately-owned commercial and investment banks.” Brooks said.
In short, he envisages an informal public-private partnership in which private corporations leave monetary control to the federal government. In turn, the government secedes the management of technological infrastructure:
“The private sector should build the technology, and the public sector should set monetary policy.”
Brooks also agrees that the U.S. has continued to take a leadership role in the world’s technology innovation initiatives. but also that this leadership is provided by the private sector, not by the government. He is therefore concerned that the government will stifle the cryptocurrency universe and development of its underlying blockchain technologies.
“The U.S. can take the lead without exerting unnecessary control over technology decisions that are providing increased access to our financial system. This can all be done while still empowering central banking authorities and building trust between individuals and institutions.” Brooks said
