Good Morning ,

Figure Technologies Incorporated is looking for regulatory approval from US authorities.

They are looking to initiate to the public an interest-bearing stablecoin. It will establish a new category for stablecoins.

This particular stablecoin will give Federal legitimacy to the new digital economy.

If approved, Figure Technologies Incorporated will be the first issuer of a stablecoin regulated as a security in the United States.

The stablecoin will accrue daily interest, and it will distribute a monthly gain to their holders.

The interest will come from reserves backed by the Treasury, Commercial Paper (cash), Corporate Bonds (SOFR) and other assets.   CryptoNewsFlash Link

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has adopted final rules that shorten the standard settlement cycle for most broker-dealer transactions from the second business day after the trade date (T+2) to the first business day after the trade date (T+1). The compliance date for this change is May 28, 2024.”

The final rule means it’s being implemented now, and all banks have until the end of May to be compliant. This does not affect currency rate changes.

The next and final step later this year is to go to instant settlement cycles.
