HSBC Says Trade Deal Shows Blockchain Viable for Trade Finance

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Photographer: Tomohiro Ohsumi/Bloomberg – – HSBC Holdings Plc completed a transaction using blockchain which it said shows the technology is commercially viable for trade finance.
  • The transaction was an end-to-end trade between a buyer and a seller and their respective banks that was completed on one shared digital application rather than multiple systems, according to HSBC.
  • It was the first scalable live trade finance transaction using blockchain, it added.
  • Blockchain helps to streamline the traditional paper-intensive process in trade finance, which normally requires between five and 10 days to exchange documents, HSBC said.
