Against this Background, also the appeal Benoît Cœurés as Chairman of the new BIS Department is to consider.

The report acknowledges the potential of stablecoins to make global payments (cost-)efficient and cost-effective; however, he also warns decidedly against possible risks for the global financial system, which resulted in projects with a worldwide scale like Libra with. In order to limit such risks, as a core requirement of the report, would need to take a coordinated approach to international regulatory authorities:
The authorities need to coordinate across agencies, sectors and jurisdictions to support responsible innovation in payments and at the same time a globally uniform response in terms of risk reduction, ensure,
the, published in October, Stable-Coin-Report of the G7 working group warns.
The Innovation Hub of the TO a to the extent that such a coordinated approach, as it will open up not only in Switzerland, but also in Hong Kong and Singapore offices. Benoît Cœuré his new Post will on 15. January 2020 to compete, the term of office is five years.
