Cryptographically secure software—including private cryptocurrencies and the distributed ledgers that enable them—can not only be tools for enhanced financial infrastructure, but also for furthering democratic civil society.

  • My name is Jack Solowey, and I am a financial technology policy analyst at the Cato Institute’s Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives. I appreciate the opportunity to comment on the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP’s) Request for Information regarding Digital Assets Research and Development (RFI).

  • The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace, and the Center for Monetary and Financial Alternatives focuses on identifying, studying, and promoting alternatives to centralized, bureaucratic, and discretionary financial regulatory systems. The opinions I express here are my own.
