IBM、巴克莱与花旗集团共同创立基于区块链的app store

近日,IBM与外汇结算服务平台CLS 联合打造了一款基于区块链技术的平台LedgerConnect。

目前,共有巴克莱银行、花旗集团在内的9家金融机构也签约参与了这一计划。

据了解,未来在LedgerConnect上人们可以找到不同金融供应商提供的应用程序,满足用户在客户合规检查、制裁筛选和智能合约等多个领域的需求。

这就好像一个银行的应用程序商店(app store),让金融企业使用基于区块链的程序变得更便宜、更便捷。

目前,已经有Calypso、MPhasis、Openrisk和Synswap等供应商在给平台上提供服务。

CLS和IBM表示,他们希望该平台可以加快银行对区块链的采用,因为为每个客户单独构建和测试应用程序将过于昂贵和耗时。

在平台完成测试阶段并提供足够的市场需求证据后,CLS和IBM希望将LedgerConnect广泛提供给业界。

 

IBM and foreign exchange settlement service CLS are building a network based on blockchain technology for testing new applications. Nine financial institutions, including Barclays and Citigroup, are already signed up to participate.

LedgerConnect will be an agnostic platform that offers applications provided by different vendors for a variety of services, such as customer compliance checks, sanctions screening and smart contracts. In short, it could look a little like an app store for banks, making it cheaper and easier for financial firms to use blockchain-based software.

Based on distributed ledger technology, it will be used by banks, buy and sell side firms, fintechs and software vendors to test the proof of concept, with vendors such as Calypso, MPhasis, Openrisk and Synswap already offering their services on the platform.

CLS and IBM have said they hope the platform can speed up adoption of blockchain by banks, as building and testing applications individually for each client would be too costly and time consuming.

After the platform finishes its testing phase and provides evidence of enough market demand, CLS and IBM hope to make LedgerConnect widely available to the industry.

Lee Braine, from the chief technology office of Barclays’ investment bank, told Reuters:

"Barclays is participating in the LedgerConnect proof-of-concept so we can gain an understanding and experience of a new network for blockchain applications – and also test some candidate use cases on that network."
