13 October 2016 Current Affairs: ICICI Bank has become the first Indian lender to complete a banking transaction using Blockchain technology.
This remittance transaction has been completed in partnership with Emirates NBD, a lender from the West Asia.
India’s largest private sector lender has managed to authenticate remittance transaction messages as well as original international trade documents related to purchase order, invoice, shipping and insurance, etc electronically on Blockchain in real time. Blockchain technology simplifies the process and drastically reduces duration of the transaction to few minutes, compared with few days otherwise.
Blockchain allows one to change the age-old process of maintaining a ledger that can be accessed only by one party. Blockchain puts in place a distributed ledger that allows a participatory model.
A recent PwC survey stated that banks and financial institutions are increasingly looking at adopting and implementing Blockchain to improve efficiency.
