Focus Area: Digital Finance

What is Digital Finance

The emergence and prominence of bitcoin and its underlying technology Blockchain with open source, real-time payments capabilities and without centralized regulatory authority has sparked the Financial Services industry into exploring how Blockchain technology might be applied to mainstream banking and insurance sectors. Blockchain technology goes further than just a distributed ledger. Another initiative gaining acceptance is Smart Contracts that use computer protocols to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract or that obviate the need for a contractual clause.

Proponents of Smart Contracts claim that many kinds of contractual clauses may thus be made partially or fully selfexecuting, self-enforcing, or both. Smart Contracts aim to provide security superior to traditional contract law and reduce other transaction costs associated with contracting.
