Mastercard Launching Multi-Token Network
Mastercard announced its Multi-Token Network (MTN), which will provide foundational capabilities designed to make transactions within the digital asset and blockchain ecosystems secure, scalable, and interoperable. Beginning this summer, the beta version of MTN will be available in the UK and act as a testbed for developing live pilot applications and use cases with financial institutions, fintechs, and central banks. The first phase of these applications will be powered by tokenized bank deposits. MTN will also be made available in additional markets around the world over time.
