On Sept. 27, in a letter addressed to European parliament member Eva Kaili, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi noted that the European System of Central Banks is closely monitoring developments in the cryptocurrency industry. Despite displaying a positive approach to new technologies, Draghi apparently thinks that stablecoins and cryptocurrency in general are not yet a substitute for fiat currency.
