MAS Launches Ubin+


The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) launched Ubin+, an expanded collaboration with international partners on cross-border foreign exchange (FX) settlement using wholesale central bank digital currency (CBDC). 

Ubin+ will focus on:

  • Studying business models and governance structures

for cross-border FX settlements using digital currency infrastructure

As part of the initiative, the MAS will be undertaking a few projects with the following international partners:

Partners: Banque de France, Swiss National Bank, and the Bank for International Settlements Innovation Hub’s Eurosystem, Switzerland and Singapore Centres.
