TOKYO -- Japan's three megabanks are set to start testing a new peer-to-peer money transfer service that uses mobile phone numbers.
The new system is based on blockchain technology. Customers can open virtual accounts tagged to their deposit accounts to send and receive money using their mobile phone numbers or email addresses. The new system will allow money transfers 24 hours a day. Fees will be significantly lower.
