Japan stops digital yen project due to lack of public interest
There will be no digital Yen in Japan: the project was stopped due to a lack of interest from the public. The Central Bank of the country (BoJ) announced the termination of work on the CBDC project. Activities to explore the potential of SSAF have been held in Japan since 2021. In April 2022, the institution began the second stage of testing, but even then the Bank stated that the digital yen would not be launched soon - there were doubts about the benefits of this undertaking. Based on testing, the Central Bank of Japan concluded that the citizens of the country have almost universal access to the banking system. Therefore, there is no economic or political need to expand access to financial services yet. And the widespread use of digital and mobile technologies in paying for goods and services casts doubt on the need to develop alternative forms of payment that are not popular.
