A total of 18 banks, representing 78% of the banking sector in terms of the number of employees, are involved in the project, which uses technology from NTT Data, SIA and R3. It is hoped that the migration to a blockchain will result in full visibility of the transactions between banks, daily rather than monthly reconciliations, and more effective communication between counterparties in the event of an exception.

The agency’s 2014 guidance left many questions unanswered, and the crypto market has grown more complex in the years since.

From financial services to healthcare, energy to automotive, leveraging B2B platforms to digitize business networks is unlocking value across business ecosystems. Referred to as the “Platform Economy” by the World Economic Forum, this megatrend is estimated to deliver a staggering €10 trillion of social and economic value over the next 10 years. At the heart of these digital B2B platforms lies one important factor – trust. While blockchain technology promises to transform B2B platforms into “trusted business networks,” distributed ledger technology (DLT) protocols – such as Corda created by R3 – is set to play a major role in building these business networks across financial services’ and corporate ecosystems. But let me remain very clear about this promise. There’s only so much technology can do.

EC, EIF launch blockchain investment scheme, contribute €100m - Ledger Insights. On Wednesday, the European Investment Fund (EIF) announced the launch of its blockchain and AI program to increase tech funding in Europe. The investment scheme is also supported by the European Commission (EC) and will make €100 million available to venture capitals supporting the emerging technologies. The EIF’s release notes that while western Europe spent $674 million on blockchain this year, only second to the US, little of it supports live, large scale projects. It’s a small fraction of the $34 billion region total, according to Atomico’s recent report. Plus, the vast majority of venture capital funds supporting blockchain are based elsewhere.

Funds used to invest much more locally then they do today; with ICOs and more global innovation, investors in blockchain now tend to go wherever the opportunity lies.

Avec Bitcoin, payer et vendre sans les banques. LE MONDE SCIENCE ET TECHNO | • Mis à jour le | Par David Larousserie Internet continue de faire vaciller les bases des secteurs les plus établis : la musique, le cinéma, le commerce, la presse. Et maintenant les banques ! Une technologie, Bitcoin, fêtera son quatrième anniversaire en janvier 2013 avec la promesse de créer un réseau de transactions financières décentralisé, anonyme et sans frais. Tout le contraire des échanges monétaires actuels, basés sur des banques centrales, des transactions identifiées et des frais de traitement entre les parties prenantes. En outre, comme souvent dans ces technologies, une vision politique est palpable : la conviction que le système monétaire actuel, fait de monopoles bancaires, conduit aux crises financières.
