Morgan Creek Co-founder: Rumors Fed Will Announce USD Digitization Plan

Anthony Pompliano, co-founder of blockchain venture capital fund Morgan Creek, tweeted today that there are rumors that the Fed plans to announce a plan to digitize the US dollar, similar to China's efforts to digitize the yuan. Pompliano said the Fed should absolutely digitize the dollar, whether the rumor is true or not.
However, the rumor is completely different from what the top US regulator said last month. In early December, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies posed a threat to national security and said they did not need digital dollars.
