马云出手区块链,恒生电子战略投资

据媒体5月5号报道,区块链创业公司Symbiont已从中国软件公司恒生电子募集到一笔融资,但具体金额不详。

据悉,恒生电子聚焦于财富资产管理领域,为证券、银行、基金、期货、信托、保险等金融机构提供整体的IT解决方案和服务。

值得注意的是,恒生电子的第一大股东正是电子商务巨头阿里巴巴的创始人马云。据报道,马云在2014年中期花了32.99亿人民币全盘收购恒生电子集团,成为恒生电子的第一大股东。根据恒生电子在过去的一份声明,该公司从今年一月份开始投资金融科技公司。

记者联系了Symbiont公司的代表,但对方拒绝透露这笔交易涉及的资金。除了提供资金之外,恒生电子将成为Symbiont公司董事会的观察员。

根据Symbiont表示,恒生电子会将Symbiont的智能合约软件整合到其中国客户群。特别是,双方的合作重点将放于公共和私人证券市场业务流程的精简之上。

恒生电子执行总裁官晓岚在一份声明中表示:

“我们选择Symbiont,是因为其优越、成熟、高度分化的分布式账本栈(DLT stack)。它的数据层受到市场领先的安全及隐私解决方案的保护,其智能合约已被证明拥有能力自动化处理复杂的业务逻辑,如为私人公司高度定制的员工薪酬瀑布分布。”

据悉,这笔投资距Symbiont 获得125万美元种子轮融资已过去了大约两年时间。

Blockchain startup Symbiont has raised an undisclosed sum from Chinese software firm Hundsun Technologies.

Hundsun, according to data from Thomson Reuters, provides software services to financial institutions such as banks, brokers and exchange operators.

The firm is partly owned by Chinese billionaire Jack Ma, who founded e-commerce giant Alibaba, after Ma spent more than $500m in mid-2014 to buy a controlling stake, per reports at the time Past statements from Hundsun indicate that it has been looking to invest in financial technology startups since as early as January.

When reached, a representative for Symbiont declined to comment on the amount Hundsun invested in Symbiont. In addition to providing the funds, Hundsun will gain a board observer.

The partnership between the two firms will see Hundsun opening up Symbiont’s smart contract software to its Chinese customer base. In particular, the partnership will focus on "[streamlining] business processes in both public and private securities markets", according to Symbiont.

Guan Xiaolan, Hundsun's executive president, said in a statement:

"We selected Symbiont because of its superior, mature and highly differentiated DLT stack. Its data layer is protected by market-leading security and privacy solutions, and its smart contracts have a proven ability to automate complex business logic, such as highly tailored employee compensation waterfalls for private companies."

The investment comes just under two years after Symbiont raised $1.25m in seed funding.
