Blockchain in Retail Banking - Thematic Research
Blockchain technology, often referred to as distributed ledger technology (DLT), is a means by which the participants in a distributed network can each maintain a copy of an immutable ledger of transactions and where transactions can be executed without the need for a single, central, coordinating authority. This ability to execute transactions effectively without the presence of a central authority is regarded by many as the chief benefit of blockchain technology, as it creates the promise that organizations will be able to transact business with one another without being subject to third-party control.
In banking, this disintermediation has serious ramifications for billions of dollars of global business. DLT could enable two parties to transact without requiring a third party for oversight or intermediation, reducing counterparty risk and arbitrage, as well as the role of parasitic supporting entities that act as bottlenecks and profit from opacity in the system.
This promises to reduce overheads and greatly reduce transaction fees, decrease the number of stages and the number of organizations involved in a transaction (thereby reducing the chance of errors), while enabling faster transactions, 24 hours a day, seven days a week (in contrast to current interbank transactions that can take days for final clearing and settlement).
