汇丰银行率先在谷歌云上使用Corda enterprise区块链

2021-2-27 11:01

 

今天汇丰银行宣布,它是第一个在谷歌云上使用R3的scorda enterprise区块链的机构。该银行将Corda用于其数字保险库保管平台,并认为向云的转移将减少入站时间。


Digital Vault服务于通过私募发行的资产的托管,无论是股票、债务还是房地产。通过将细节数字化,资产所有者可以查看他们的记录,而不需要申请纸质证书。他们可能需要审计或检查利息支付的细节。使用区块链的一个好处是减少了保存记录的成本。


目前的解决方案只是将整个过程的一小部分数字化。未来,资产可能在区块链上发行、通证化、转移和托管。数字保险库是迈向这一目标的一小步。


汇丰(HSBC)分布式账本技术和通证化、市场与证券服务主管Gaurav Aggarwal表示:“除了减少入职时间和降低成本,it(迁移到谷歌云)将帮助我们为未来做好准备,在未来,整个交易生命周期都可以存储在分布式账本上。”


目前,Digital Vault只在亚洲开放。


2019年公布解决方案时,计划转移汇丰托管的500亿美元私人资产中的约200亿美元。这在汇丰管理的总资产中只是很小的一部分。


该银行还有许多其他区块链活动。六个月前,汇丰银行(HSBC)为新加坡交易所(SGX)数字资产平台的债券发行提供了链上结算解决方案。


汇丰也是Contour贸易融资平台背后的主要推动力量,该平台也利用Corda进行融资。它是“我们”的一个参与者。贸易融资网络。


同时,谷歌云对托管公共区块链和DLT网络很感兴趣。它是Hedera Hashgraph的管理委员会成员,这意味着它是节点的宿主。此外,它还表达了对托管EOS公共区块链节点的兴趣。

 

Today HSBC announced it’s the first institution to use R3’sCorda enterprise blockchain on Google Cloud. The bank uses Corda for its Digital Vault custody platform and believes the move to the cloud will cut onboarding times.

Digital Vault caters for the custody of assets issued through private placement, whether that’s equity, debt or real estate. By digitizing the details, asset owners can check their records without the need to request the paper certificate. They might need details for an audit or to check an interest payment. A benefit of using blockchain is the reduction in record-keeping costs.

The current solution only digitizes a small part of the process. In the future, assets are likely to be issued, tokenized, transferred and custodied on blockchain. The Digital Vault is a baby step towards that.

“As well as cutting onboarding times and reducing costs, it (move to Google Cloud) will help us prepare for the future, in which the full transaction lifecycle could be stored on a distributed ledger,” said Gaurav Aggarwal, HSBC’s Head of Distributed Ledger Technology and Tokenisation, Markets & Securities Services.

For now, Digital Vault is only available in Asia.

When the solution was unveiled in 2019, the plan was to move around $20 billion of the $50 billion privately placed assets that HSBC custodies. These are a tiny fraction of the total assets that HSBC looks after.

The bank has numerous other blockchain activities. Six months ago, HSBC provided its on-chain settlement solution for a bond issuance on the Singapore Exchange’s (SGX) digital asset platform.

HSBC was also a major driver behind the Contour trade finance platform, which also leverages Corda. And it’s a participant in the we.trade finance network.

Meanwhile, Google Cloud has taken an interest in hosting public blockchain and DLT networks. It is on the governing council of Hedera Hashgraph, which means it hosts nodes. Plus, it expressed an interest in hosting nodes for the EOS public blockchain.
