  • Since its inception in 2019, over $300 billion in transactions have been processed using JPM Coin, making it one of the most extensive uses of blockchain technology by a traditional financial institution. The system allows JPMorgan's institutional clients to make wholesale payments between accounts around the world using blockchain tech as the rails.

    The $300 billion is still but a drop in the ocean compared to the nearly $10 trillion that JPMorgan processes by conventional means on a daily basis.

    JPMorgan did not immediately respond to CoinDesk's request for further comment.
