Blockchain for Capital Markets

Capital Markets CIO Outlook | Wednesday, July 04, 2018

When we talk of blockchain, the first thing that flashes in our mind is bitcoin. But the emerging technology has lots to offer in various fields without bitcoin being in the picture. Today, blockchain has been happily welcomed by many tech aficionados and is subsequently being adopted in several disparate parts of the market chain. For instance, using a blockchain system can be a smart and advanced way to streamline trades as well as improve the regulatory compliance by closing any potential threat gateways. By recording every transaction, blockchain makes committing fraud more difficult and assists organizations in keeping every transaction secure. In a nutshell, it can be virtually deployed on any system built on individual exchanges, which makes it ideal for market transactions.

For independent traders, the major benefit is that there will be fewer corruption issues while engaging with large capital markets providers. In the long run, traders will be benefited with reduced insurance costs and cheaper banking scenarios. Furthermore, they don’t have to worry about trades going over the limit as once the transaction limit is reached, the trades can be stopped automatically. Adding to this, blockchain also renders accurate reports in real-time; with snapshots of activities paving easier ways to find out the problems associated with the processes. As the deployment of blockchain will expand, it will influence more markets and subsequently trading aberrations and fraud will decrease.
