JPM Coin is the second dollar-backed cryptocurrency (stablecoin) from a major bank (the first was Signet, launched by Signature Bank on December 4, 2018). It was announced by JP Morgan Chase in February, 2019 as an institution-to-institution service. A permissioned blockchain variant of Ethereum called Quorum is used as the distributed ledger platform.
