The Japanese bank MUFG Will Launch Its Own Cryptocurrency

The Japanese bank MUFG Will Launch Its Own Cryptocurrency

After loud statements by Buffett and Gates concerning cryptocurrency, it seemed that at least the state institutions of countries would refuse from it, but a Japanese bank Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group still decided to acquire its own cryptocurrency, MUFG Coin, in 2019.

“Regarding the speculation (in) media reports, these reports are not based on any announcement by MUFG, and the details have not been decided,” the bank’s spokesman said in an emailed statement to Reuters. “However we can only say that it’s true that MUFG is conducting demonstration experiments on the ‘Coin’ within the company utilizing a blockchain technology.”

According to NHK Japan, the digital currency MUFG Coin will be tested for suitability in several regions of the country. 100,000 people who are associated with the company will be able to participate.

Representatives of the bank will provide an opportunity for users to use the cryptocurrency as a means to pay for goods and services in shops and institutions. The bank’s digital currency can be transferred to the accounts of those who participate in the project. If the idea is successful, then MUFG will be the first Japanese bank that has its own digital currency.

The MUFG coin can be used exclusively in Japan. In the world market it can be traded in pairs at non-financial currency exchanges instead of USTD (Tether cryptocurrency, tied to the dollar).

Those people who have downloaded and installed an application that automatically converts deposits into MUFG Coin will be able to take part in the test of the new currency. The cost of one coin is equal to one yen.

We remind you that the management of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group announced its intention to launch a  cryptocurrency exchange with the national currency, as well as a service with split Bitcoin-accounts.
