Blockchain in Financial Markets and Beyond
Challenges and Applications
Discipline: Operational Risk
Blockchain, the system that relies on networked computers which keep a record of all the transactions that have gone through it, has become an increasingly significant component of FinTech. Blockchain is only going to grow in importance in the way it disrupts and challenges the traditional financial services industry. Many financial institutions (FIs) are already starting to invest in this technology, with Deutsche Bank, Santander, NASDAQ and Barclays are just four examples of FIs which have been actively exploring how to utilise blockchain within their existing frameworks.
