    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.

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.

As Modern Consensus reported last week, this could have been driven by BTC and ETH’s healthy performance, rumors of products that could unlock new use cases for XRP, and a spike in the number of new accounts activated on the XRP Ledger.
