We encourage SCS issuers who would like their stablecoins recognized as “MAS regulated stablecoins” to make early preparations for compliance.”

The framework lists several critical requirements for SCS issuers including subjects requirement to ensure a high degree of value stability, maintain minimal base capital, and redemption timelines and provide some appropriate disclosures.
