September 14, 2022

GYEN is the first JPY stablecoin approved by the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) and is a 1:1 backed stablecoin with assets held at FDIC-insured banks. The partnership demonstrates Anchorage’s support for responsibly regulated stablecoins, and offers institutional traders another way to interact with JPY—expanding institutional trading participation in one of the world’s most traded currencies, known as a historical safe haven.
