As of now, the token will not be open to exchanges pertaining to regulatory concerns and know-your-customer (KYC) rules.

For those looking to acquire the stablecoin, a fiat currency transfer is held in an escrow account at the German bank, which will then issue the EURB.

Philipp Doppelhammer, Bankhaus von der Heydt managing director, said:

“We were drawn to Bitbond and Stellar due to the ease in which assets are issued and managed on the network.”

Third-party developers of financial apps can then immediately settle the asset transfers on-chain. The underlying platform will give full control of the stablecoin’s security to the bank, including burning and minting the token.

Denelle Dixon, CEO and Executive Director of the Stellar Development Foundation said:

“This is a testament to the ways that traditional banking and blockchain can work together, bringing together one of the oldest banks in Europe with a FinTech start-up to deliver exciting innovation in the digital currency space.”
