This year’s anniversary event featured a panel discussion examining the past year in new forms of digital money, taking a look back at the key developments of 2023, as well as a look ahead to what may happen in 2024, with a particular focus on policy development globally. Key questions included:

  • How has the implementation of a well-designed digital Pound advanced in the UK?
  • How will stablecoins be regulated and what are the resulting prospects for the stablecoin market?
  • How is the wider global landscape for new forms of digital money affecting what happens here in the UK?

Panellists included:

  • Jannah Patchay, Executive Director – Digital Pound Foundation (Moderator)
  • Andrew Whitworth, Policy Director, EMEA – Ripple
  • Elise Soucie, Director of Policy & Regulation – Global Digital Finance (GDF)
  • Laura Navaratnam, UK Policy Lead, Crypto Council for Innovation
  • Claire Conby, Co-Founder, Head of UK – OneStep Financial

We also hosted a keynote speech from David Birch, a recognised thought-leader in digital identity and digital money, and published author of three books: “The Currency Cold War”, “Before Babylon, Beyond Bitcoin”, and “Identity is the New Money”.

The debate and discussion was followed by a drinks reception, bringing together our members, supporters and the wider digital money community.

A full write-up from the evening and the discussions will be published here shortly.
