CBDC could lead to “deeply negative interest rates”
According to the Wall Street Journal, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) could have a real negative impact on interest rates, as they would provide policy makers with another tool.
In a September 8 article, “Digital Currencies Pave the Way for Deeply Negative Interest Rates,” lead columnist James Mackintosh argues that the gap between CBDC and cash would widen if interest rates fell below zero. People would be more inclined to hold physical cash to “earn zero” than to lose money on a digital dollar issued by the central bank.
This means that the central bank will have more leverage on interest rates if it issues digital dollars that cannot be hidden under a mattress, he added.

Ukraine has adopted a crypto bill, even though the IMF is sounding the alarm
Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian parliament, officially adopted Bill no. 3637 on virtual assets, which for the first time legally recognizes cryptocurrencies in the country. Although digital assets were never considered illegal, they existed in the legal gray area because they were not recognized by any of the country’s legislatures.
A new Ukrainian bill defines digital assets as intangible assets expressed in the form of electronic data, a report in the Kyiv Post revealed. It also offers a detailed explanation of what digital wallets and private keys are, as these terms have never been used in any Ukrainian law.
If the new law is approved by President Zelensky, the Ministry of Digital Transformation will be entrusted with supervising its implementation. The ministry will also work to “direct industry growth” according to existing standards developed by the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF).
