JCB, Japan's largest credit card issuer, has just teamed up with the technology accelerator TECHFUND to work on the development of a blockchain-based payment system.
According to the official press release shared by JCB on May 15, the company will use TECHFUND's expertise in security token offerings (STO) and staking to develop and launch a new payment platform.
TECHFUND has a program called ACCEL BaaS (Blockchain-as-a-Service) program, which is aimed at boosting the adoption of blockchain tech.

The company has issued its credit cards in more than 20 countries, including Japan, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Korea and Russia.
