A currency that is centralized to ensure financial stability
The crypto-currencies issued by central banks could have a significant impact on the current financial system, said the vice-governor of the central bank of Japan, at a conference fintech. He explained to the participants, including representatives of the international monetary Fund (IMF) and the financial services Authority in the country (FSA), the Bank of Japan did not intend to create its own virtual currency. According to Amamiya, the government financial institutions have the mission to overcome the problems related to payment instruments.

In the modern financial system, the private banks provide payment services to the general public and allocate financial resources to the economy through loans and credit. Masayoshi Amamiya has also expressed its concerns regarding the issuance of virtual currency by central banks.
The issue of crypto-national currencies would be risky
Comments from Masayoshi Amamiya intervene at a time when many central banks are against the launch of crypto-currency supported by the State. In recent months, several countries have tried the issuance of digital currencies and national. They have been considered as alternatives to crypto-currencies, decentralized, like the Bitcoin.
This month, a top official of the swiss national bank has expressed the same concerns. According to Andrea Maechler, member of the board of directors of the swiss bank, the crypto-currencies used in the private sector are less risky than the version proposed by a central bank.
