The U.S. Federal Reserve, the country’s central bank is looking to hire a new manager to oversee its traditional payments section; as well as to research on digital currencies, Stablecoin, distributed ledger technology and financial innovation in retail payments.

Moreover, digital currencies are attracting attention at a very high pace in the United States of America. Last month, in the U.S. House of Representatives Mark Zuckerberg said that the U.S. has to up its game in the cryptocurrency space before the likes of China introduce state issued cryptocurrency. China’s digital currency threatens America’s global financial leadership. As per reports, the Federal Reserve has launched a whole new wing on integration of digital currencies in to the traditional financial system.

Additionally, FED has claimed on various occasions its aim at understanding cryptocurrencies in depth to avoid risks.

The job posting on FED’s website highlighted that the newly hired manager; will be responsible for promoting and participating in innovations research that we expect to be focused on Stablecoin, cryptocurrencies, Blockchain technology and digitizing retail payments.

Furthermore, the ad highlights that the suitable candidate to expect a maximum salary of up to $250,700. This shows that the Federal Reserve is willing to heavily invest in streamlining the integration of cryptocurrency in to the existing monetary system.

Moreover, last month the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee; asked FED if they are planning to launch a digital dollar. This expresses the concern that the U.S dollar could be in jeopardy from wide adoption of digital fiat currencies.
