The Blockchain-based Hyperledger for its US- Canada inter-bank settlements by Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).
According to the source, on Thursday Martin Wildberger, Executive Vice President for Innovation and Technology says that the technology has been “shadowing” the bank’s legacy transaction monitoring ledger for “several weeks”.
“Everybody recognizes Blockchain will be transformative and critical,” he told the publication. “At the same point in time, I think everybody recognizes these are early days”.
Further, Hyperledger enters into the traditional payments industry with multiple major organizations globally. However, blockchain is already leveraging as to save time and money while improving security.
RBC, which is now deeming “distributed ledger technology”, contrasts with the Canadian central bank’s decision in May this year not to deploy Blockchain for its domestic payments.
“We wanted to set it up as a shadow ledger so that we can demonstrate our leadership in exploiting that technology, while at the same time recognizing that the technology is still early in its adoption phase”.
