Reuters: Broker ICAP says first to use blockchain for trading data
ICAP said that it has become the first to develop a proof of technology to distribute data on trades to customers using blockchain technology. Blockchain, or distributed ledger technology, creates a shared database in which participants can trace every transaction ever conducted. Its proponents say it has the potential to shake up how financial markets operate.It is part of the "fintech" sector that is beginning to catch the eye of regulators as big banks invest in uses of blockchain for critical market infrastructure such as settlement of securities transactions, bond trading and cross-border payments. Banks could save money in middle- and back-office functions by relying on the golden source data to meet different requirements, rather than having to repeatedly "re-validate" the trades in their own systems for each application, ICAP said. "We believe we are the first to do this using distributed ledger and blockchain technology," said Jenny Knott, chief executive of ICAP's Post Trade Risk and Information unit. "What's really transformational is that the banks no longer have to do so much themselves."
