Podcast: Exploring the link between gold and central bank digital currencies


What impact will the emergence of central bank digital currencies and cryptoassets have on the gold market? John Reade, our Chief Market Strategist and Bob Wardrop, director and co-founder of the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, join David Marsh, OMFIF chairman, to explore this question.

They expand on topics emerging from the recent OMFIF and World Gold Council paper ‘Central bank digital currencies and gold’, including those surrounding geopolitics, inflation, trust and the role of gold in a future dominated by CBDCs and cryptoassets.
