Other Side Of The Coin, exploring the future of currency, will be hosted by Naga Munchetty, the award-winning journalist and broadcaster, best-known as one of the main presenters on breakfast TV.

The event will discuss the Bank of England’s central bank digital currency (CBDC) and the parallels with cryptocurrency seeking to fit into a regulatory framework.

The guests will explore how this digital pound represents a new type of government-backed currency – not a cryptocurrency, but a form of money issued by the Bank of England and denominated just like sterling.

Even anti-regulation crypto enthusiasts are now demanding regulation after the demise of so many cryptocurrencies and the event will explore what the future holds for crypto and stablecoins, with CBDCs like the digital pound in place.

As Deputy Governor of the Bank of England for Financial Stability, Sir Jon Cunliffe is responsible for financial stability, the supervision and oversight of financial market infrastructures and payment systems and for international.
