A New Look at CryptoCurrency

President Biden signed an executive order directing the federal government to come up with a plan to regulate cryptocurrencies, recognizing their popularity and potential to destabilize traditional finance. At the same time, the President announced that his administration would explore the creation of a government backed digital currency, tentatively dubbed “U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency” -- but doesn’t this defeat the whole purpose?
