Digital Platformer Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Kazutaka Matsuda, hereinafter “DP”) is the Hokkoku Bank, Ltd. (Headquarters: Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Director and President: Shuji Tsuemura, hereinafter “The Hokkoku Bank”) ) has been providing technology for Tochituka*1, a digital local currency service that utilizes blockchain technology, and this time, Hokkoku Bank will take the lead in issuing Japan’s first deposit-type stable coin, Tochituka. We will also provide technology and launch the service today. Overview of the deposit-type stable coin “Tochika” To use “Tochika”, you need to install the “Tochika” app and register a bank deposit account for charging within the app. A TOCHICA account will be opened through this procedure. After opening, by charging your registered bank account, 1 Tochika = 1 yen can be used for payments at Tochitsuka member stores. *2Furthermore, member stores that adopt this service can implement cashless payments with a payment fee of 0.5% (tax included), which is one of the lowest in the world. *1 An application for using the digital local currency “Tochipo” and the deposit-type stable coin “Tochika” *2 Registration of a bank deposit account for charging is only available to holders of Hokkoku Bank’s savings account. If you do not have an account, you will need to open one.
[Image 2:×383.jpg] Figure 1 Prospects for the spread of deposit-type stable coins regarding the Tochitsuka service Businesses that have traditionally avoided introducing cashless payments due to the high burden of payment fees, and regional products issued on a paper basis We will promote the use of “Tochituka” for the ticket business, etc., and aim to revitalize the region through digitalization. This initiative aims to accelerate regional digital transformation (DX) and contribute to the revitalization of the local economy. In collaboration with Hokkoku Bank, we will actively expand the provision of stable coin issuance platforms to other financial institutions in the prefecture, enable charge coordination, and improve the simplicity of the service so that more Ishikawa residents can use it. We plan to increase this. We also plan to implement a person-to-person remittance function that will allow users to send Tochika by the end of 2024. Starting from Ishikawa Prefecture, this initiative will promote the issuance of deposit-type stablecoins at financial institutions in other regions, creating a more convenient environment where services using stablecoins can be mutually used throughout the country. We aim to build. As a pioneer of a new payment infrastructure, we will work with Hokkoku Bank to focus on further promoting its introduction to other financial institutions, and contribute to the DX of financial infrastructure nationwide and regional revitalization with stable coins.
