The Wall Street giant is aiming to capture the payments industry using blockchain technology by expanding its Interbank Information Network (IIN), according to a Financial Times report.

Earlier this year, reports surfaced that the Wall Street giant is developing its native digital currency to increase its settlement efficiency. The structure of the coin, however, received some criticisms from the crypto community as the bank is planning to restrict the use of the coin to its major institutional clients.

JP Morgan has also become the largest blockchain employer in the financial services sector over the past 12 months, Finance Magnates reported last month.
