Belgium’s biggest bank KBC is gauging customer interest in Bitcoin and crypto with an eye on launching new services. KBC earlier during this year had announced its plans to launch its own cryptocurrency and alter its approach to digital assets. The bank’s native cryptocurrency functions as a reward token, allowing the bank to develop customer interaction strategies that promote the platform and encourage users to use it.
During the presentation of the first months of the virtual assistant “Kate” included in the banking app, the bank announced. The KBC coin is currently unavailable to the general public, but it has already begun testing in a private environment. The bank did not provide any additional information about the project’s roadmap, aside from the regulatory rules and economic characteristics, indicating that KBC is concentrating on its crypto’s technological and privacy aspects.
KBC stated that their token has nothing to do with Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency on the market. Instead, it will only run within the bank’s infrastructure, avoiding the major price swings that traditional cryptocurrencies are subject to.
As of now, they have mailed their customers asking them some questions. The mail says:
