The Bank of Japan’s Deputy Governor Masayoshi Amamiya also said back in April 2018 that digital currencies did not have enough stability, and issuing them from a central bank would result in damaging the two-tiered currency system in Japan.

Amamiya later followed up on his position on the mater recently stating digital currency issuance is not something that’s concerning Japan mostly due to the impact it can have on commercial banking. He believed that digital currencies could replace private deposits, that could degrade the credit channels of commercial banks and have an offsetting effect on the economy.

Other Asian countries like China are already on their path to unveil an RMB-based digital currency set to be released later in 2020. Seeing the opinion of the Bank of Japan change and take efforts to understand the benefits of digital currencies and hopefully eventually choose to implement one is a positive change that’s interesting to see.
