    One of Europe’s oldest banks partners with crypto firm to issue euro stablecoin on Stellar

    Bankhaus von der Heydt’s token is reportedly “the first stablecoin issued directly by a banking institution on Stellar.”

    The bank used Bitbond’s white label tokenization service to issue its stablecoin to increase the efficiency of its securitization with the help of the Stellar Development Foundation. BVDH can now act as its own paying agent for the issuance of new debt securities, speeding up its ability to issue them. The deal will also allow it to create new opportunities with banking clients who want to issue tokenized financial assets with full on-chain settlement.
