卡塔尔商业银行完成首次区块链国际汇款原型测试

近日,卡塔尔商业银行宣布完成了首次针对国际汇款而设计的区块链原型测试。

该项目是与IT巨头Infosys子公司EdgeVerve Systems一起开发的,并且与商业银行的几家子公司和相关银行的一起在系统内进行交易。

就在不久前,也有一些中东地区银行进行了类似的区块链试验。比如上个月,卡塔尔商业银行就披露了与阿联酋,阿曼和土耳其银行的合作,而这项合作也被视为是在中东和菲律宾建立付款通道开发新业务线的一部分。

据卡塔尔商业银行透露,该机构正在寻找更广泛地区的更多合作伙伴。对此,卡塔尔商业银行首席执行官Joseph Abraham在一份声明中表示:

“我们对商业银行集团的这一试点的成功感到非常高兴,并希望扩大集群,形成与南亚、埃及、菲律宾、阿联酋等交易量较大的国家的更多银行进行贸易和现金交易的封闭集团网络。”

据悉,在宣布试点完成后,该银行重申了过去关于其贸易融资解决方案计划的声明,也是以区块链作为技术支持。 据该机构高级官员说,卡塔尔商业银行同时可能会继续开展区块链技术在其他领域的应用试验。

 

The Commercial Bank of Qatar has announced the completion of testing on a blockchain prototype designed for international remittances.

Developed in conjunction with EdgeVerve Systems, a subsidiary of IT giant Infosys, the project saw the Commercial Bank partner with several of its subsidiaries and associated banks in conducting transactions over the system.

The news follows hot on the heels of a similar blockchain trial conducted with other banks in the region. Last month, the Commercial Bank revealed work with banks in the UAE, Oman and Turkey, which saw the participants sending one another payments as part of a bid to develop new lines in established payment corridors in the Middle East and the Philippines.

According to the Commercial Bank, that plan is still on the agenda, with the institution now eyeing more partners across a wider region.

Joseph Abraham, Commercial Bank of Qatar’s CEO, said in a statement:

"We are delighted with the success of this pilot across the Commercial Bank Group and want to expand our cluster to form closed group networks for trade and cash transactions with more banks in South Asia, Egypt, Philippines, UAE and other countries with higher transaction volumes."

In announcing the pilot's completion, the bank reiterated past statements about its plans for a trade finance solution, also powered by blockchain. The Commercial Bank further intends to pursue other use cases of the tech, according to senior officials.
