渣打银行试点基于区块链的贸易金融解决方案

本周,渣打银行宣布正式加入“马可波罗”区块链计划。

“马可波罗”计划于2017年正式启动,自推出以来就吸引了全球各大银行、金融集团的关注。

得益于TradeIX所开发的TiX平台以及R3的Corda区块链技术支持,“马可波罗”计划已经研发出了一套完整的解决方案,主要关注发货后的贸易融资。该方案使贸易参与者之间点对点、实时无缝连接成为可能,消除了阻止信息自由流动、导致低效及矛盾的“数据竖井。

这一解决方案起初主要用于三个不同的贸易金融领域:基于贸易数据匹配、应付款项融资、应收账款融资,通过提前完成支付义务来消减风险。

据了解,该计划发起者希望在2018年实现进一步扩张,吸纳更多银行、第三方服务提供商(例如信用卡发行公司、ERP以及后勤服务提供商)成员,利用该平台的合作特性,打造一个完全交互合作的开源式贸易金融网络。

 

The initiative, called Marco Polo (www.marcopolo.finance) comprised of a group of the world’s leading banks, together with trade finance technology specialist TradeIX and enterprise software firm R3, are piloting their trade finance solution leveraging distributed ledger technology following a successful proof-of-concept.

Following its launch in 2017, the initiative, has attracted significant interest from the global banking community, with additional banks including Standard Chartered, joining in recent months.

The Marco Polo initiative has developed a solution for post-shipment trade financing powered by the TiX platform from TradeIX and R3 Corda blockchain technology. It enables end-to-end, real-time, seamless connectivity between trade participants, eliminating the data silos which prevent free flow of information causing inefficiencies and discrepancies.

Initially the solution is focused on three distinct areas of trade finance: risk mitigation by provision of payment commitments based on the matching of trade data, payables finance, and receivables finance. It will be delivered via TradeIX’s TIX Platform, an open platform providing applications, technology tools and core infrastructure for the trade finance ecosystem.

The collective ambition is to expand the initiative in 2018 to include additional banks and third party service providers, such as credit insurers, ERP and logistics providers, leveraging the collaborative nature of the platform to create a fully interoperable open-sourced trade finance network.

Michael Vrontamitis, Head of Trade, Europe & Americas, Standard Chartered said: “The age of digital collaboration in trade finance has arrived and we see our participation in this initiative as an important component to accelerate this and drive financing deeper into global supply chains. This in turn enables greater avaibility of financing for small and medium enterprises.”

Connie Leung, Senior Director, Financial Services Business Lead – Asia, Microsoft said: “Heavy paper processing across complex supply chain processes are a significant burden to businesses. The industry has been looking for solutions to simplify and digitize trade, making supply chain ripe for the benefits of blockchain technology.” Yorke Rhodes III, Azure Blockchain Engineering, Microsoft added: “It is exciting to be part of the growing ecosystem building trade finance solutions on blockchain. Microsoft is honoured to be providing our global scale cloud as a foundation to R3 and TradeIX to speed this solution to market.”
