The Japanese banking giant is currently engaged in discussions with stablecoin companies regarding the potential issuance of these tokens.

MUFG (Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group) is currently in discussions with the creators of well-known global stablecoins, exploring the possibility of issuing stablecoins through their blockchain platform.

Japan’s banking giant is engaged in negotiations to become an issuer of stablecoins. The country recently implemented stablecoin regulations, which came into effect on June 1. Under these regulations, only licensed banks, registered money transfer agents, and investment companies in Japan are permitted to issue tokens.

Tatsuya Saito, Vice President of Product at the bank, revealed in an interview that MUFG is currently engaged in discussions with various parties to create stablecoins tied to foreign currencies, such as the US dollar. These stablecoins are intended for global use and will be facilitated through MUFG’s blockchain platform, Progmat.

Saito expressed confidence in the safety of stablecoins, stating that both issuers and users can trust them. However, he did not disclose the specific stablecoin parties with whom MUFG is currently engaged in discussions.

Stablecoins play a vital role in the cryptocurrency industry, providing a means for investors to temporarily store funds between transactions involving more volatile tokens. These coins aim to maintain a stable value, usually set at $1, and often have backing reserves such as cash and bonds. Consequently, regulators have intensified their examination of stablecoins. Japan’s legislation promotes the use of tokens that are fully backed by fiat cash in a corresponding currency.

Saito mentioned that MUFG is engaging in stablecoin discussions with entertainment companies, non-financial businesses, and a consortium of Japanese financial institutions. Additionally, Saito highlighted the presence of requests from financial groups outside of Japan, suggesting the potential for Japan to emerge as a global hub for stablecoin issuance.
