JP Morgan’s Strides in Crypto Space
It is worth noting that JP Morgan keeps recording giant strides in the crypto ecosystem. The multinational financial institution operates various crypto-related products and services.
JP Morgan has its blockchain network called Onyx. It is a business unit under the bank that leverages blockchain technologies to transform banking services.
The New York-based financial institution also launched Onyx lounge in Decentraland. This stride makes JP Morgan the first US bank to delve into the metaverse.
The Onyx lounge will enable the bank to function and run its banking services virtually, just as it does in the physical world.
Naveen Mallela, the global head of coin systems at Onyx, said, “ We are looking to actively build an ecosystem that enables settlements 24/7— that is, settlement for both cryptocurrencies and tokenized securities, involving exchanges, brokers, and asset managers.”
Similarly, JP Morgan said it would combine its payments expertise with Siemens’ Internet of Things.
It will use its factories with sensors to create pay-to-use systems, from maintaining supplies to dynamically adjusting cash requirements.
The blockchain platform will give treasurers more advanced tools, predictability, and the ability to transact with all manner of counterparties.
The financial institution also has a private Stablecoin called the JPM Coin. A report shows that JPM Coin now facilitates about $300 million of cross-border payments daily within the bank’s network.
