Mr. Monopoly to Replace Benjamin Franklin On $100 Bill

Washington DC- "We are announcing a joint marketing campaign between Hasboro and The Treasury Department," announced Janet Yellen at a press conference on Sunday. "We need to come up with new and creative ways to engage the youth in using the dollar to prevent them from becoming interested in cryptocurrencies."

Federal Reserve Chair, Jerome Powell also shared some remarks on the topic, adding, "Very few people actually use the paper money anymore. This seems like a really good way to transition to CBDC's."
