Blockchain (or Distributed Ledger Technology - DLT) has captured the attention of many in the financial sector and recently more of those active in payment, clearing and settlement, mainly because of its promise of efficiency and resilience.
Central banks and other authorities are reviewing and analysing the use of this technology for payment, clearing and settlement. Practitioners and thought leaders at this conference help to understand the uses of DLT and, in doing so, identify both the opportunities and challenges associated with this technology in the context of many B2B, B2C, C2C and C2B settlements.
Although DLT bears promise, there is still a long way to go before that promise is fully realised. Much work is needed to ensure that the legal underpinnings of DLT arrangements are sound.
Benefits: Speed of end-to-end processing; Cost of processing; Speed and transparency in transactions; Efficiency gains from automated instant and paperless contract tools.
Uncertainties still to be refined and resolved: Operational and security risk; Settlement issues; Legal risk; Governance; Data management and protection; Potential broader financial market implications.
