" The Institute will be made up of technologists, politicians, financiers, regulators and some companies focused on the development of blockchain, such as Cypherium.
** The Bank for International Settlements has released a report urging the world's central banks to consider developing their own digital currencies as a measure to help against the spread of COVID-19.
The new Institute will operate much like the parent organization, OMFIF, by regularly organizing meetings and forums in which all members can discuss relevant issues. Sky Guo, CEO of Cypherium, explained the importance of having economists and financial politicians as members: "Through the Institute's events and conferences, we can explore practical and detailed ways in which Cypherium technology can benefit our financial systems Global. The world and markets are constantly changing, and we are in uncertain times. Blockchains have become one of the undisputed engines of innovation of our time, and they will certainly help us navigate to a more prosperous future."
