“It was the first time we had tokenized deposits. I actually think its the first time any bank in the world has tokenized wallets on a public blockchain.

Using public blockchain, we had to spend a lot of time thinking through identity. We did lots of audits of smart contracts because again they were publicly visible. And finally, it was using a protocol to actually make it all happen. Its a lot of managing the risks. All of these were firsts for us.

One month ago, JP Morganannouncedthey were exploring the possibility of a blockchain-based wallet.

“Web3 demands a new way for us to interact with digital assets, protect our identities and access the Web3 economy. Onyx by J.P.
