It has been revealed that Vitalik BUterin has a warning for CBDCs. Check out the latest reports about this below.

CBDC new warning is out

According to reports, Vitalik Buterin, co-creator of Ethereum (ETH), has expressed disappointment with the development of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

In an interview with CNBC, he stated that he once had high hopes for CBDCs, but now believes they have mostly become “front ends” for traditional banking systems.

Buterin explained that he used to believe CBDCs could be made blockchain-friendly, transparent, and private, but as these projects matured, they have not lived up to his expectations.

He added that these systems are not much better than existing payment systems because they essentially become different front-ends for traditional banking systems.

It has been suggested by Buterin that CBDCs are unlikely to provide private digital assets. Instead, he believes that they will allow corporations and the government to monitor financial transactions made by users.

This results in even less privacy and breaks down existing barriers against both entities simultaneously.

Buterin goes on to state that Ethereum may be more resilient to government interference, particularly with the implementation of a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism.

This mechanism is easier to anonymize and less susceptible to shutdown compared to proof-of-work, which demands a significant amount of physical equipment and electricity.

These are precisely the types of things that drug enforcement agencies have been detecting for decades.

Not too long ago, we revealed the fact that the House Financial Services Committee of the United States has voted in favor of a proposed law that aims to prevent the Federal Reserve from releasing a central bank digital currency (CBDC).

The CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act, introduced by Congressman Tom Emmer (R-MN), was passed during a markup session on Wednesday.

Emmer believes that this proposed legislation will help protect privacy, individual sovereignty, and free market competitiveness by preventing the American government from issuing a financial surveillance tool.
