Quantstamp Announcements
January 11, 2021

Quantstamp is serving as a technical contributor on the World Economic Forum’s Digital Currency Governance Consortium which is a multi-sector community of experts and policymakers co-designing policy and governance frameworks for central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and stablecoins. The Digital Currency Governance Consortium is contributing to two working groups, one that is investigating the value proposition of stablecoins for financial inclusion, and the other that is developing a framework to guide central banks in their understanding of key technology decisions for CBDCs. 

For the latter, Quantstamp is working with the World Economic Forum, ConsenSys, and the Stellar Development Foundation, among other organizations. The findings of this working group will be used to help policymakers including central banks understand the technical choices and trade-offs associated with developing CBDCs for various policy goals, such as financial inclusion or payment system resilience. 

Central Banks are Exploring CBDCs

A primary goal of the World Economic Forum’s work related to CBDCs is helping policymakers understand the range of critical issues involved with the development of a CBDC. Central bank interest in digital currencies is increasing with the diminished use of cash for payments during the COVID-19 pandemic, and news related to both CBDC initiatives around the world and private-sector stablecoin initiatives. According to the Bank for International Settlements, more than 80% of central banks are exploring CBDCs currently or in the near future. 

In addition to CBDCs, the World Economic Forum has contributed to other applications and policy areas related to blockchain technology including anti-corruption and government transparency, dispute resolution for on-chain enterprise transactions, data marketplaces, and governance models. The World Economic Forum is prioritizing heavy collaboration with governments, the private sector, academia, and civil society in order to best co-design research and policy frameworks that are globally relevant, valuable, and likely to be adopted. In regards to CBDC projects, the World Economic Forum is facilitating a shared understanding of how this technology is implemented, governed, and regulated.

Prior Engagements with the World Economic Forum

This is not the first time that Quantstamp has worked with the World Economic Forum. Quantstamp also collaborated with the World Economic Forum in their effort to study blockchain’s ability to reduce corruption in Colombia. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development reports that an estimated 20-25% of funds are lost to corruption globally at the government level

The World Economic Forum, Inter-American Development Bank, and National University of Colombia worked with Quantstamp as one of its technical contributors to design and build a blockchain-based technology solution to increase the transparency and accountability in Colombia’s public procurement process. This project was the most comprehensive investigation of blockchain’s ability to address corruption that has been conducted to date. It intends to serve as a resource and model for other countries. 

Experts in Blockchain Security

The World Economic Forum invited Quantstamp to serve as a technical contributor because of our expertise in the blockchain industry. Quantstamp has secured over 8 billion USD worth of digital assets over the course of over 200 engagements with our clients. We secured two Ethereum 2.0 clients (Prysm and Teku), other Layer 1 protocols, and complex DeFi protocols, formally verified financial blockchain primitives, and more. Our clients and their users trust us to keep their assets safe. 

Quantstamp looks forward to working with NGOs and governments to facilitate their understanding of digital currency.

Quantstamp 公告
2021年1月11日

Quantstamp 是世界经济论坛数字货币治理联合会的技术贡献者,该联合会是一个由专家和决策者组成的多部门社区,共同设计中央银行数字货币和稳定币的政策和治理框架。数字货币治理联合会正在为两个工作组做出贡献,一个工作组正在调查稳定币对金融包容性的价值主张,另一个工作组正在制定一个框架,以指导中央银行理解中央银行数字货币的关键技术决定。 

就后者而言,Quantstamp 正在与世界经济论坛、ConsenSys和恒星发展基金会等组织合作。该工作组的研究结果将用于帮助包括中央银行在内的政策制定者了解为实现各种政策目标(如金融包容性或支付系统的复原力)而发展社区数据中心的相关技术选择和权衡。 

央行正在探索CBDC

世界经济论坛与社区发展中心有关的工作的一个主要目标是帮助决策者了解与社区发展中心的发展有关的一系列关键问题。随着COVID-19大流行期间使用现金支付的减少,中央银行对数字货币的兴趣正在增加,世界各地的CBDC倡议和私营部门稳定币倡议的相关新闻也在增加。根据国际清算银行的数据,超过80%的央行目前或在不久的将来正在探索CBDC。

除区块链发展中心外,世界经济论坛还对与区块链技术相关的其他应用和政策领域做出了贡献,包括反腐败和政府透明度、链上企业交易的争端解决、数据市场和治理模式。世界经济论坛优先考虑与政府、私营部门、学术界和民间社会进行大量合作,以便最好地共同设计具有全球相关性、有价值并可能被采纳的研究和政策框架。关于社区发展中心项目,世界经济论坛正在促进对这一技术如何实施、管理和规范的共同理解。

以前与世界经济论坛的接触

这不是Quantstamp 第一次与世界经济论坛合作。Quantstamp 也与世界经济论坛合作,努力研究区块链在哥伦比亚减少腐败的能力。经济合作与发展组织报告称,据估计,全球有20-25%的资金因政府层面的腐败而流失

世界经济论坛、美洲开发银行和哥伦比亚国立大学作为其技术贡献者之一,与Quantstamp ,共同设计并建立了一个基于区块链的技术解决方案,以提高哥伦比亚公共采购过程的透明度和问责制。该项目是迄今为止对区块链解决腐败问题的能力进行的最全面的调查。它打算作为其他国家的资源和模式。 

区块链安全专家

由于我们在区块链行业的专业知识,世界经济论坛邀请Quantstamp 作为技术贡献者。Quantstamp 在与客户的200多次接触中,我们已经确保了价值超过80亿美元的数字资产。我们为两个Ethereum 2.0客户端(PrysmTeku)、其他第一层协议、以及复杂的DeFi协议、经过正式验证的金融区块链基元等提供担保。我们的客户和他们的用户相信我们能保证他们的资产安全。

Quantstamp 期待与非政府组织和政府合作,促进他们对数字货币的理解。
