The Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell stated on Tuesday that the central bank may end up stepping to remove its efforts in boosting the economy as it starts battling rising inflationary pressures. In his appearance before a committee, the Fed chair stated that reducing the momentum of purchasing monthly bonds may move much more rapidly than the USD 15 billion-a-month schedule which was announced this month. Powell stated that he is expecting the issues to be surfaced in the meeting to be held in December. The initial tapering schedule had June in its plans tapering the bond purchases; if the committee ends up choosing acceleration, then that turn the tapering schedule much closer to that in the spring, providing the Fed much more freedom for raising the interest rates anytime thereafter. The statements led to some nervousness in the market and stocks plummeted, while government bond yields registering a rise.

US Treasury doubts bitcoin and bets on a digital dollar(bitcoin treasure)The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, Janet Yellen, assured that bitcoin continues not to be established as a payment method and she considers it as "an extremely inefficient way to carry out transactions.

"This, after the cryptocurrency soared in the past weeks and has been adopted by companies likeTesla for certain operations; After the dizzying rise, bitcoin now suffers a sharp decline.In a virtual event held by The New York Times on Monday, Yellen considered that "the amount of energy that is consumed when processing transactions" with bitcoins is "staggering.

""I don't think bitcoin is a widely used transaction mechanism," Yellen said in the virtual interview.However, Yellen was in favor of continuing to explore the possibility of a “digital dollar”,maintained by the Federal Reserve and based on blockchain technology like the rest of cryptocurrencies.In the opinion of the former president of the Federal Reserve, a digital dollar could be"faster, safer and cheaper to make payments", but there are conditions that must be resolved beforehand.Yellen said that doubts should be resolved about the impact it would have on the banking system, since it could lead to the outflow of deposits from traditional banks to the FederalReserve and perhaps the most appropriate thing is that the central bank is only a wholesaler of this type of digital payment method.He also recalled that it is necessary to resolve questions about the stability of the financia system and how this new cryptocurrency issued by the US government would affect the fight against money laundering and capital evasion.The price of bitcoin fell below $ 49,000 on Tuesday, losing more than 12%, after Tesla founderElon Musk, turned into an online guru in matters of cryptocurrencies and other types of favorite assets, over the weekend, say that it was overrated.So far this year, bitcoin has exceeded the $ 58,000 barrier and has appreciated more than 80% thanks, among other things, to the fact that Tesla decided to invest in it.

The US Federal Reserve Board has announced its real-time payments system called FedNow.

The service is being developed now and will be available by 2024, Federal Reserve said Monday, and will be "ubiquitous, safe and efficient."

Real-time payments systems already exist, such as Venmo and banking apps.

But the Federal Reserve said most current services are "closed loop" so only people with the same app can transfer money to each other, and some apps cannot reach all 10,000 different banks that exist across the US.

For the new inter-bank system, the Federal Reserve will speed up its settlement and clearing processes for payments between different banks.

It will be available 24/7, 365 days a year, and will be initially limited to $25,000.

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President John Williams said the Fed is not working on its own digital currency, right now.

Reuters reported Wednesday Williams said the Fed is paying attention to research on blockchain, the technology underpinning cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.

The Federal Reserve isn't planning on launching its own digital currency — at least for now.

While speaking at an event at Arizona State University on Wednesday, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, John Williams, said the Fed is not working on its own digital currency, according to Reuters reporting.

But the Fed is paying attention to research on blockchain, the technology underpinning bitcoin, the news wire said.

Earlier this year, Jerome Powell, a member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, said a central bank digital currency would face privacy issues and competition from private enterprises, according to Bloomberg News.

WASHINGTON Reuters - The Federal Reserve said it was launching a Facebook page on Thursday, part of an effort to reach out directly to a general public.

Facebook users will now have a chance to "like" the Fed on the social media site, although the central bank's standing as measured by public opinion polls has taken a hit since the 2007-09 recession.

Many economists believe the Fed played a critical role in guiding America out of the recession as other authorities in Washington appeared hamstrung by political gridlock.

But in 2014, Gallup found 38 percent of Americans polled considered that the Federal Reserve Board was doing an excellent or good job, while 14 percent said it was performing poorly.

That gave the Fed a net-positive rating of 24 percentage points, about half its level in 2003.

In terms of design, paper currency in the United States hasn’t changed much in the past hundred years.

There have been updates and additional flourishes — not to mention security measures — but overall, it’s essentially the same set of bills circulated since 1913.

Congress, that year, passed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, thereby setting up a system in which Federal Reserve Notes (paper currency) were distributed to Federal Reserve Banks around the country.

These notes were legal tender, backed by the Fed, featuring dead presidents, black, red, and blue ink, and a very special paper made by Crane & Co.

The late 20s also brought a slight redesign, and the green color you’re probably used to seeing now.

But, for about a century, the overall look and feel of paper currency hasn’t really changed all that much.
