Francisco Khoza

The talk will explore the cryptocurrency revolution and the possible role of central banks as intermediaries as well as the case for regulating the use of cryptocurrency.

The topic covers an ongoing debate regarding the role of central banks and regulation. It is particularly interesting in that those who see a positive role for central banks and regulation challenge the philosophical basis of cryptocurrencies which is supportive of intermediation.
