香港科技大学获2000万美元支付系统与区块链科研资金

近日,香港科技大学商学院宣布获得2000万美元研究经费,主要用于提高电子支付系统安全性的相关研究。

据报道,香港科技大学(香港科技大学)商学院将与香港大学(HKU)、香港中文大学(CUHK)和香港城市大学(CityU)合作开展研究工作。

除加强电子支付保障制度外,各方亦会探讨区块链技术应用,并讨论香港转型为全球金融科技中心的可能性。

据报道,本次跨学科研究将由Tan Jiayin教授协调,他以“加强香港作为区域和国际商业中心的战略地位”的工作而闻名,重点是区块链、网络安全和人工智能(AI)。他对银行的参与表示欢迎,因为该研究还将探索数字货币和金融产品设计与分销服务。

2017年,为了“大幅减少贸易融资通常需要的人力资源投入和时间,减少欺诈机会”,香港政府宣布计划建立区块链供电的贸易融资体系。该系统有望使该国参与中国的“一带一路”倡议,该倡议旨在促进中国与其全球合作伙伴之间的贸易联系。

今年6月,阿里巴巴的子公司蚂蚁金服试用了第一批区块链汇款,在三秒钟内在香港的AliPayHK应用和菲律宾支付应用程序GCash之间进行了交易。

上个月,香港金融管理局和平安集团金融科技子公司宣布与21家银行合作推出自己的区块链贸易融资解决方案。该解决方案旨在通过平滑交易来减少为银行服务注册新的新业务所涉及的时间和官僚作风。

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School has received a $20 million research grant to improve the security capabilities of electronic payment systems, China News reported August 12.

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) Business School has reportedly partnered with the University of Hong Kong (HKU), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), and the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) to work on the research project.

Apart from the enhancement of the electronic payment security system, the parties will also explore blockchain technology applications, and discuss the possibility of Hong Kong’s transformation into a global financial technology hub.

The interdisciplinary research will reportedly be coordinated by professor Tan Jiayin, who is known for his work on the “Strengthening Hong Kong's Strategic Position as a Regional and International Business Center” with a focus on blockchain, network security, and artificial intelligence (AI). He welcomed the participation of banks as the research will also explore digital currencies and financial product design and distribution services.

In 2017, in order to “significantly reduce the input of human resources and time that trade finance normally requires, and reduce chances of fraud,” the Hong Kong government announced plans to establish a blockchain-powered trade financing system. The system was expected to benefit the country in its participation in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to promote trade links between China and its global partners.

In June of this year, Alibaba subsidiary Ant Financial, formerly known as AliPay, trialled its first blockchain remittances, sending a transaction between AliPayHK app in Hong Kong and Filipino payment app GCash in three seconds.

Last month, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and a Ping An Group fintech subsidiary announced the launch of their own blockchain trade finance solution with 21 banks. The solution aims to reduce the amount of time and bureaucracy involved in signing up new fledgling businesses for banking services by smoothing over transactions.
