Banking group National Australia Bank (NAB) is creating a secured stablecoin AUDN, reports AFR citing own sources.
The stablecoin will be launched on the basis of Ethereum and Algorand approximately in the middle of the year.
The stablecoin will be backed by the Australian dollar at a ratio of 1:1. NAB will act as custodian.

- international money transfers;
- REPO transactions.
