What did the representatives of the crypto industry say? Jeremy Allaire, the Circle CEO, which launched the stable USD Coin token, said that stablecoins contribute to the global spread of the dollar. According to him, they continue to dominate the market even after alternatives like the digital yuan have emerged.

Allaire explained that the US crypto industry wants the dollar to play a strategic role, so supporting stablecoins should be a “national security priority.”

The head of Circle also noted that stablecoins provide security for the currency. In his view, banks pose a greater risk to the economy than virtual currencies.
