日本多家银行成立区块链联盟 目标锁定内外汇服务

近日,日本金融服务业巨头SBI Holdings和其子公司SBI Ripple Asia共同创建了一个新联盟,并将于2016年10月起正式运营。其任务是发展使用区块链技术的支付与结算业务。

初始成员包括日本几家金融公司,如横滨银行和SBI Sumishin 网络银行有限公司。2016年10月正式公布的初始成员中应有15家银行,到2017年3月,这一数字会翻一倍。

区块链:即时无界结算

前文所单独提到的两家银行在此之前已参与多个FinTech项目,而新联盟的重心将是基于区块链的支付与结算服务。

由于信息技术的快速发展,24小时以及实时结算服务逐渐兴起,这正是该联盟成立的原因。除此之外,小额汇款和以跨境电子商务为代表的无界社会也是他们的关注点。

SBI Holdings和FinTech公司Ripple联合成立的新公司SBI Ripple Asia将作为该联盟的秘书处。SBI Ripple Asia侧重服务亚洲国家,如日本、中国和韩国。

该联盟有意在2017年3月前创建一个基于Ripple开发的区块链内外汇服务结算平台。

大步迈向“当日结算”

近来日本逐渐成为了区块链与Fintech投资的中心阵地,产生了几轮大数额融资。其中,比特币交易所Kraken就在今年早些时候从SBI Holdings下属的风险资本部门SBI Investment那获得了一份“几百万美元的协议”。

日本其他一些银行业巨头也在投资区块链技术。2016年中旬,大型银行业团体Mizuho金融宣布,它将与科技巨头IBM合作发展在结算服务中运用区块链。

2015年3月,Mizuho公布了一成功的区块链试验结果,跨境证券交易几天就可结算。当时它的合作对象是科技公司Fujitsu实验有限公司。

Japanese financial services giant SBI Holdings and its subsidiary SBI Ripple Asia, have collaborated to launch a consortium that will seek to use blockchain innovation – the technology underpinning bitcoin – in new payment and settlement services from October 2016.

Inaugural members of the new consortium will see several financial companies from the country joining, including the Bank of Yokohoma and SBI Sumishin Net Bank, Ltd. Altogether, some 15 banks are expected to be amongst the list of inaugural members in October 2016. That number is expected to double to 30 in March 2017.

Instant Borderless Settlements via Blockchain

The two aforementioned banks are specifically named for already endeavoring with various FinTech initiatives prior to the consortium while the new working group will specifically focus on blockchain-based payment and settlement services.

The new consortium will seek to address the new trend of 24-hour and real-time settlement services stemming from the rapid advances in information and communications technology (ICT). The banking consortium will also study the demand for small-value remittance as well as the borderless society that sees cross-border ecommerce coming to the fore.

SBI Ripple Asia, a newly formed company that sees FinTech firm Ripple and SBI Holdings collaborate to serve ASEAN countries including Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea, among others, will serve as the consortium’s secretariat.

The working group aims to create a settlement platform for domestic and foreign exchange services using Ripple-developed blockchain technology by March 2017.

Rushing Toward Same-Day Settlements

Japan has been at the center of a number of blockchain and fintech-related investments in recent times. Notable funding rounds include that of major bitcoin exchange Kraken which saw a “multi-million dollar agreement” from SBI Investment, the venture capital arm of SBI Holdings earlier this year.

The country is also seeing other banking giants invest in blockchain technology. In mid-2016, major banking group Mizuho Financial announced??partnership?with technology giant IBM to test blockchain technology’s potential in settlements.

In March 2015, Mizuho announced the results of a?successful?blockchain trial, one that saw a collaboration with technology firm Fujitsu Labs Ltd., result in same-day settlements of cross-border securities transactions.
