After the launch of the first crypto exchange supported by banks in Japan, now the South Korean SBI financial giant is about to start trialing the S-Coin, based on the open ledger. S-Coin stands for “settlement coin.” It is intended to be used via smartphones for charging and settlement.
The trails are intended to take place among the company’s employees. The staff plans to buy lunches cash-free in the cafes at the company’s main office in Tokyo.
In order to conduct S-Coin operations, SBI is using special terminals provided by the Glory company.
