Japan Joins In Exploring Central Bank Digital Assets

JAPAN JOINS LIST OF COUNTRIES EXPLORING CENTRAL BANK CRYPTO ASSETS-techcryption

Last week, Sweden became the first to test Europe’s central bank digital currency (CBDC) in order to be an example for other developed economies. Now, Japan has joined the list of countries in exploring the central bank crypto assets.

Japan’s Central Bank and Finance Ministry have decided to consider a state-backed crypto asset and discuss the issues in relation to creating them. It is notable that China was almost the first country to launch its digital yuan.

“We are advancing research and study from the technical and legal perspectives so that we will be able to move in an appropriate way when there is a growing need.”
