CBDCS & Stablecoins: The Asia Perspective

We are in a history defining moment where money is evolving. It’s not easy to replicate cash, and central bankers around the world face unique challenges.

The U.S. is softening up to the idea of CBDCs with the launch of a technical sandbox to study the digital dollar.

Here in Asia, China is speeding away with the launch of the digital yuan. Singapore is experimenting with innovative digital asset payment solutions while tightening rules on retail crypto investors. The Philippines central bank is optimistic yet cautious on the potential of crypto in the country.

Key themes:
> How will CBDCs and stablecoins transform the financial system in Asia?
> Can the region lead the way for digital transformation of money?
> What are some unique opportunities in the digital assets space in Singapore and Philippines?
> What are some of the challenges central banks face when regulating digital assets?
> How can regulators ensure the security and privacy of individuals while maintaining public confidence?

The Future of Crypto Regulations: APAC and Beyond

Despite market volatility against the backdrop of a global recession, blockchain and crypto adoption continues to make headway across APAC.

Key questions remain: Are digital assets securities, commodities or currencies? What does the recent U.S. bill that defines Bitcoin and Ethereum as commodities mean for crypto policy in APAC?

From Singapore’s tightening policies to Hong Kong’s upcoming mandatory licensing for exchanges and Australia’s stablecoin regulations, hear from our speakers on how to navigate the new regulatory landscape.


  • Senator Andrew Bragg (Liberal Senator for New South Wales) on why Australia needs urgent crypto regulations
  • Caroline Bowler (CEO, BTC Markets) who leads the largest digital assets exchange in Australia
  • Angelina Kwan (CEO, Stratford Finance) who formerly led regulatory compliance for Hong Kong Exchange
  • Hassan Ahmed (Head of SE Asia, Coinbase) on policy outlook for SE Asia

Crypto Rising

The Future of Stablecoins

Stablecoins serve a key role in the crypto ecosystem. They’re a digital expression of a currency, in most cases, the U.S. dollar. But not all stablecoins are created equal.

Increasingly, regulators are wading into stablecoin space.

With the collapse of Terra, regulators across the globe are now in a race, possibly against time. How will this shape the future of stablecoins? What function do stablecoins play in a future digital asset-based financial system? How should banks, financial institutions and investors think about stablecoins as both an asset and a liability?

Join us at Crypto Rising, where smart conversations happen. We explore the vulnerabilities of stablecoins, what is likely to happen on the regulatory side and what role stablecoins might increasingly play in the future.

To make sense of what’s happening, Forkast+ NOW is on location in Davos, Switzerland and will explore the greater impact and the future of algorithmic stablecoins with the some of the world’s top thinkers.
