The chairmen of the leading Central Bank during the online statement organized by the Bank of France called the intensification of the regulation of the Defi sector against the backdrop of its development.
The head of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) Jerome Powell announced the availability of structural problems in the Defi-transist. In his opinion, one of them is the lack https://gagarin.news/news/novogratz-admitted-he-was-darn-wrong-about-the-crisis-and-accused-the-sec/ of transparency.
“The good news, I believe, is that from the point of view of financial stability, the interaction between the Defi ecosystem and the traditional banking system is currently not so great,” said the chairman of the Fed.
However, Powell warned that such a situation “would not persist endlessly”. He pointed out the presence of a “real need for more suitable regulation” as the decentralized finance sector expands.
In the speech of the chairman of the Federal Reserve, a parallel was traced with the recent conclusions of the researchers of the department. In their opinion, the lack of a clear regulatory framework threatens long-term risks for financial stability by Defi.
President of the European Central Bank Christine Lagarda recalled Terra’s collapse. In her opinion, this case “justifies” the tightening of regulation.
“If we do not participate in this game, if we do not participate in experiments, innovations from the point of view of digital money of the Central Bank, we risk losing the role of the anchor that have played for many, many decades,” she said.

Opinion: CBDC will bring stability to the Defi sector
Member of the Board of the National Bank of Switzerland Thomas Moser said that CBDC can interact with the Defi sector and provide it with greater stability.
According to him, centralization and decentralization in digital currencies “can work together”. As an example, he cited USDT and USDC stablecoins.
However, the digital currency of the Central Bank wins on “stable coins”, because “does not entail the risk of a counterparty,” added Moser. He noticed that Bitcoin and Ethereum are not suitable to support the steady growth of Defi due to volatility.
