US payments task force reports on instant payments

On 26 January the Fast Payments Task Force – a US Central Bank Working Group –  published a report stating that digital currencies and distributed ledgers could have a considerable impact on how US businesses and citizens carry out payments. Later this year, a second report will be released on recommendations for improving the US payments ecosystem. It remains unclear whether this report will include digital currency related recommendations.
