The New York State Department of Financial Services, the Bitlicense regulator, has authorized GMO to issue U.S. dollar and Japanese yen-pegged stablecoins. The latter “will be the first of its kind available to the public.†To date, the regulator has given out 27 charters and licenses for companies engaged in crypto activities.

First Regulated Yen Stablecoin Approved in NY

The New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) has granted a charter under New York Banking Law to GMO-z.com Trust Company Inc., a subsidiary of the Japanese giant GMO Internet. This enables the company to operate as a limited liability trust company, the regulator announced Tuesday, elaborating:

“Including the charter granted to GMO, to date DFS has approved 27 charters and licenses for companies engaged in virtual currency business activity,†the announcement continues.

GMO-z Trust Company president Ken Nakamura commented: “We’re breaking ground with our move to issue the first regulated JPY-pegged stablecoin, which many see as a safe haven asset. But we are also pioneers and innovators in this space who envision building new applications of blockchain technology that transform our relationship with traditional financial services.â€

The DFS began licensing firms engaged in cryptocurrency businesses in 2015 and has since revised its crypto regulatory approach. “This includes streamlining the process for companies to adopt new coins through a self-certification framework and a coins Greenlist, making use of the department’s conditional licensing authority, and providing new clarity about DFS processes and expectations to applicants and licensed entities,†the regulator described.
