International collaboration, CBDCs on the rise, and the line between commercial and central banks blurring, Charles d'Haussy, author of "Block Kong" and managing director at ConsenSys, joins to discuss. As the former head of Fintech for the government of Hong Kong, d'Haussy has worked closely with several governments and central banks. He lends us an insider perspective into financial developments within the blackbox of China, specifically their work on the digital Yuan as well as broader implications of mass CBDC adoption worldwide. He sees tremendous benefits to such adoption, while addressing common concerns like privacy. He also touches on the Tether controversy within the context of this interesting sector that has arisen out of crypto—"Centralized DeFi," as d'Haussy calls it.
