汇丰银行明年将在区块链上追踪200亿美元的资产

路透社周三报道,汇丰银行计划明年年初在区块链托管平台上追踪大约200亿美元的资产。


根据这份报告,汇丰银行计划在2020年3月之前将其目前的纸质记录转移到其数字金库平台,允许投资者实时跟踪证券。英国这家总部位于美国的银行将专门将其私人配售记录数字化,让投资者能够快速查看其持股情况。


该报告称,这些记录目前以纸质形式保存。以当前的形式访问它们可能是“棘手和耗时的”。


根据报告,汇丰银行只有40%的记录转移到区块链。该银行目前持有500亿美元的资产。


路透称,尽管使用区块链平台是为了节省成本,但汇丰"无法量化可以为该行或其客户节省多少成本"。


独立顾问Windsor Holden告诉路透社,他预计在2021年下半年该平台推出后不会宣布任何节省。


一年多来,世行一直在试验区块链工具。今年1月,汇丰银行宣布,它已经通过区块链平台结算了约300万笔外汇交易,在此过程中进行了约2,500亿美元的交易。这笔钱还包括另外15万美元的付款。


该银行过去也曾暗示使用区块链来对信用证进行数字化。


汇丰没有立即回应置评请求。

 

HSBC bank is planning on tracking roughly $20 billion in assets on a blockchain-based custody platform early next year, Reuters reported Wednesday.

According to the report, HSBC intends to move its current paper-based records onto its Digital Vault platform by March 2020, allowing investors to track securities in real-time. The U.K.-based bank will specifically digitize its private placement records, allowing investors to quickly check on holdings. 

The records are currently held in paper-based records, according to the report. It can be “tricky and time-consuming” to access them in their present form.

HSBC is only transferring 40 percent of its records onto a blockchain, according to the report. The bank holds $50 billion in assets at present. 

While using a blockchain platform is intended to save costs, HSBC “could not quantify the amount that could be saved for the bank or its clients,” Reuters said. 

An independent consultant, Windsor Holden, told Reuters that he does not expect any savings will be announced before the latter half of 2021 after the platform is rolled out. 

The bank has experimented with blockchain tools for more than a year now. In January, HSBC announced it had settled some 3 million foreign exchange transactions using a blockchain platform, conducting some $250 billion in trades in the process. The sum included another 150,000 in payments. 

The bank has also hinted at using blockchain to digitize letters of credit in the past.

HSBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
