Blockchain: Founding the New Financial Era

Banking CIO Outlook | Thursday, August 01, 2019

Blockchain drives business transformation across various industries, and finance is no exception.   

FERMONT, CA: Business officials need to cope with the continual transformation of the digital economy. Blockchain technology makes transactions quick and simple. With this technology's advanced payment methods, the users can quickly see more mainstream banking facilities relying on the blockchain. Here are some of the incredible ways to demonstrate how blockchain transforms the finance sector to achieve customer satisfaction.

Supply Chain & Trade Finance

Automated smart contracts and blockchain can change the way the supply chain, and trade finance company processes work. Since supply chains are complex and distributed across the globe involving many parties, there is a lack of trust between each other that leads to the need for trusted third parties such as banks or intermediaries. With blockchain, smart contracts can be performed automatically without the need for intermediaries and their charges to transfer any products or cash.

International Payments

One of the main flaws that we faced during the international transfer of cash is that it takes a lot of time because the global payment industry is enormous, slow, expensive and untraceable, making it more error-prone, leading to money laundering. This is where cooperation with blockchain is needed for such payments. Blockchain will allow the banking industry to deliver low price, lower human error, and fraud instances in real-time global payments.

KYC Compliance

Most financial institutions are accountable from their local regulator for complying with and reporting on multiple client safety demands. The KYC is the main requirement, but the method can be very time-consuming as there is no automated system for client identification and team inclusion to accomplish their job. However, blockchain can ease the entire process by providing a single digital source of ID data to exchange files between external organizations and banks without interruption. This helps to reduce the resource, time, price, and preserve the legally important data privacy.

Banks, financial intermediaries, and technology service suppliers will explore methods to assist DLT to create new products and services, enhance compliance programs, decrease operating costs, and enhance liquidity.
