A Little More About the Digital Dollar Project’s Partners
Written by: Alexa Brunet
The Digital Dollar Project (DDP) was created through the established partnerships between Accenture, FTI Consulting, and the Digital Dollar Foundation. The DDP’s goal is to encourage the creation of a public forum that discusses the advantages and disadvantages of a U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and educates Congressional officials as to how they can implement it through legislation.
Here’s a little background on the DDP’s partners:
Accenture: A global professional services company in the digital, cloud, and security spaces, Accenture works with over 40 different industries and offers a multitude of services, including Strategy and Consulting, Technology, and Operations. Accenture is one of the DDP’s most strategic partners as it has a global reach and a high level of expertise.
FTI Consulting: As a global business advisory firm, FTI Consulting will provide the DDP with strategic communications support. FTI Consulting primarily deals with managing corporate change, which is typically accompanied by mitigating risk and problem-solving.
Digital Dollar Foundation: As a not-for-profit organization created to support the directives of the DDP, the Digital Dollar Foundation can be seen as the actual foundation of the DDP. This foundation is led by three professionals in the virtual currency and blockchain space: Christopher Giancarlo, Charles H. Giancarlo, and Daniel Gorfine.
