All banks registered under the American CryptoFed will have the option to generate their own wallet co-branded with the American CryptoFed. This wallet will be integrated into their existing mobile banking applications with an embedded payment option for Ducat payments at merchant Point of Sale (POS). As banks onboard new members into the American CryptoFed economy, wallets are created for each new user which also act as a Ducat revenue source for each bank.
There are two types of wallets: Class C wallets (Consumer Wallets) and Class B wallets (Business Wallets).

Money supply decided by USD backup collateral. After USD decoupled from Gold Standard in 1971, it no longer had any precious metal backup. The only advantage USD has over Ducat is mandatory acceptance.
No collateral backup. Money supply decided by existing consensus protocol. For example, every 10 minutes, 6.25 Bitcoins are supplied.
No collateral backup. Money supply decided by the Target Exchange Rate (TER). Market price is managed to be close to the target via Machine Learning and Linear Control Theory applied to on-chain data.

“The debate about the validity of their economics remains open. It hinges on the question of the extent to which full employment is the normal or strong tendency of a decentralized system.Hayek thought it was; Keynes thought it wasn’t. Both could appeal to the facts to support them. Hayek could point out that the capitalist market economy had been the major factor in lifting the world out of poverty and reducing violence, Keynes to the fact that it achieved full employment only in ‘moments of excitement’; that its progress was punctuated by crashes which periodically threw millions out of work; and that the capitalist era had witnessed two of the most devastating wars in history.” — Robert Skidelsky, Keynes v Hayek: The Four Buts, page 164-165, in From the Past to the Future: Ideas and Actions for a Free Society, January 15-17,2020, A Special Meeting, The Mont Pelerin Society.
