Introduction

The announcement from the US DTCC that it aims to move its post-trade derivatives processing system onto distributed ledger technology (DLT) marks a major step in making the technology viable at the scale required by financial services.

Highlights

Features and Benefits

  • Looks at how cross-industry collaboration has been a key factor in project planning.
  • Learn how tightly defined ambitions based on a calculated reduction in operating costs will ensure that the technology is not deployed for its own sake.

Key questions answered

  • What implications does the DTCC project have for wider adoption of blockchain in financial services?
