G20 Finance Leaders Say Stablecoins Give Serious Regulatory Risks
October 20, 2019

The G20 Finance Chiefs of the world agree that global stablecoins give rise to a set of public policy and regulatory risks.

On October 18, it has been reported by Reuters that the G20, an International Forum for the Governments and Central Bank Governors from 19 countries and the European Union, has called upon the International Monetary Fund to examine various macroeconomic implications of global stablecoins, including monetary sovereignty issues in its member countries.

As per the report, the nations agreed that global acceptance of stablecoins will give rise to a set of serious public policy and regulatory risks.

Finance Ministers of G20 stated:

“Such risks, including in particular those related to money laundering, illicit finance, and consumer and investor protection, need to be evaluated and appropriately addressed before these projects can commence operation.”

Haruhiko Kuroda, the Governor of Bank of Japan, said that the G20 summit will begin with a debate regarding stablecoin regulations, following proposals from global regulatory bodies like the Financial Stability Board and the Financial Action Task Force.

Kuroda stated:

“Some emerging countries have concerns on what could happen if stablecoins backed by a huge customer base become widely used globally […] But this is not just a problem for emerging economies. It could have a broader impact on monetary policy and financial system stability.”
