Today, on October 14, the Litecoin founder Charlie Lee posted a tweet in response to a post published by Tone Vays, a crypto trader.

The trader made it public that he is going to represent Bitcoin on stage at the CC Blockchain Forum in London (taking place 14 – 16 October), since no one else was going to do that and dispute with the ‘fake Satoshi’ Craig Wright.

The reason for Lee's rebukes is simple – many leaders of top crypto platforms refused to take part in the event when they found out that Dr Craig Wright would be present as one of the speakers.

Tone Vays chose to speak on Bitcoin, since, as per his tweet, Roger Ver, who was going to do that in the first place and dispute with Dr. Doom (Nouriel Roubini), a major BTC critic. Vays posted a screenshot of participants' list, saying that Roger Ver was suddenly replaced with Wright.

However, the official website of the event shows both Roger Ver and Craig Wright as speakers.

Former US Congressman Ron Paul spoke on Fox Business and said that the Fed should not think about creating its own cryptocurrency.

Fed’s Crypto: To Be or Not To Be?

Rumors have been circulating for the past few months about the Fed possibly creating own cryptocurrency. It is expected that a digital coin would become a competitor to its counterparts on the market, and may even replace fiat money. President Patrick Harker, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, commented on such rumors at a recent conference:

“It is inevitable. I think it is better for us to start getting our hands around it.”

However, there has not been no official follow-up by the Fed towards a crypto exchange. While proponents of this idea believe such innovation is necessary, it is expected that the exchange could stop the current delays involving US bank transfers.

What do the opponents think about the Fed's own cryptocurrency?

The idea of ​​creating the Fed's cryptocurrency has its opponents. This includes Ron Paul, who believes that the Fed is in a better position to stay away from digital coins and allow the private blockchain sector and payment platforms to resolve this discussion in real-time. What the Fed plans to do next is unclear, but the central bank may still enter the game.
