About the stable coin

IBM’s solution compares to JPMorgan Chase’s JPM Coin stablecoin, he noted that IBM’s solution would be “somewhere in between” JPM’s exclusive, closed network asset. He elaborated:

“It’s not a proprietary coin like JPMorgan’s solution, although I think what they’re doing makes a lot of sense for them. […] What JPM’s doing also adds tremendous validation to what we’re doing. But our view for stablecoins is really that they should be more broadly accessible and what World Wire seeks to do is to provide fungibility of digital assets across financial institutions.”
