Senator Kyrsten Sinema asked Powell if the Fed is monitoring crypto performance given the recent market volatility and what impact cryptocurrencies have on the economic outlook and monetary policy. broader currency of the United States.

“Of course, we are still monitoring every crypto move very carefully,” Powell added. “We don’t see significant macroeconomic impacts from the crypto sell-off.”

In March, the Fed chair said, “Our current regulatory frameworks are not built with the digital world in mind… Stablecoins, central bank digital currencies, and digital finance digital in general. Going forward, there may be changes to existing laws and regulations or even entirely new rules and frameworks for cryptocurrencies.”

Powell also told the Senate banking committee on Wednesday that the central bank is determined to reduce inflation, which he believes the Fed can do.
