Progressing technology through industry initiatives
Across financial services, DLTs are developing at pace. The speculation surrounding the technology is fast being replaced by concrete research and development outputs in the form of proofs of concept, simulations and prototypes. At SWIFT we have long been analysing and testing the potential application of blockchain technology in the financial industry.
Over the past year, we have witnessed a number of advancements with the technology, addressing many of the critical requirements necessary for the DLT to potentially achieve industry wide adoption.
