Earlier this week a number of U.S legislative proposals were made calling for the creation of “Digital Dollar Wallets”. A part of the larger policy discussion around the COVID-19 response, these wallets are intended to be a means to get government stimulus money to citizens quickly and efficiently.
The proposals (which did not make it into the final COVID-19 package passed this week) reflect an inflection point, pointing to greater policymaker understanding of the power of personal digital wallets.
Given this heightened interest, we are issuing a Call to Action to GDF members interesting in forming a Digital Dollar Working group. The purpose would be to review these proposals, provide commentary and exchange reactions, and form a white paper examining how a proposal, if passed, might work practically. If you are interested in joining the working group please email email@example.com
