Digital dollar proposals, included in an early draft of a massive U.S. coronavirus-induced stimulus bill, have reignited the debate over government-run payment platforms.

A provision for a digital dollar was part of a draft stimulus bill put together by the U.S. Democratic Party as a means to make payments to people and businesses hit by coronavirus-induced economic turmoil, but it didn’t make the final cut.

While plans for the digital dollar have fallen by the wayside for now, others aren’t far behind—China’s digital yuan is in the pipeline and now a digital euro is being trialled by France’s central bank.
