In order to improve the processes and the speed of transactions, almost all the banking system of Italy leaves the old technology. Now, the Blockchain and the banca italiana are merged in more than 80% in order to provide better answers to various financial aspects.
In this way, interbank transfers in Italy are performed by means of the platform Blockchain Corda R3. This, according to sources, would be accelerating significantly the process of double verification of the transaction logs.
Thus, the reconciliation check, the same way that the underlying technology of the exchange of data, as there were at the height of the needs. For this reason, according to the authorities, the shift towards technology Blockchain was becoming a necessity of the first order.
Blockchain is more efficient in the eyes of the banking Italian
According to Silvia Anastasia, head of innovation of the Italian Banking Association (ABI), the difference is abysmal. In statements collected by the website CoinDesk, the official ensures that, with the old system, the average time for reconciliation, was of almost two months.
At the same time, he explains, with the merger of the Blockchain (Corda) banking and Italian, such a process hardly takes 24 hours. It is one of the main reasons that the banking system of this nation, has turned overwhelmingly to the use of the new network technology.
It should be taken into consideration that the banks ‘ agreement of Italy, was signed in the year 1978 and consists of physical delivery among the banks. In may of last year, 2019, the agreement was updated, with the possibility of integrating banks with the technology Blockchain.
Also, the agreement with Corda, the above-mentioned operator in the network Blockchain, allowed the banking of that nation to merge with the chain blocks. Practically all transactions of this nature were made with the new technology.
Blockchain is now part of the banca italiana in order to improve the speed of interbank transactions.
The banks of the world and the chain of blocks
Since the emergence of the technology Blockchain, the attitude of banks has changed in a radical way. Be hostile and openly enemies of the public in any firm or intention related to the chain of blocks, they are now one of the main users.
This is because, in a globalized world, people want immediacy in their transfers. This is a problem that the system of traditional finance is unable to give a response. The most clear example, is observed in the forced merger between the Blockchain and the banking Italian.
The other case in which this trend is evident, is in the digital currencies. A few years ago, the banks were completely denied any relationship with the same. But the appetite of the people for Bitcoin, has forced the central banks to enter into the process of designing their own digital currencies.
The lack of liquidity, the economic problems caused by the pandemic Covid-19, as well as the high commissions of payment systems for the network, you are opening the door to the cryptocurrencies. In this regard, the bank has begun to feel outdated.
Unable to compete with the new form of finance, the case of the merger of the Blockchain with the banking, this is not an isolated case of Italy. It is a process that will be commonplace until you reach global proportions.
The efficiency and the transparency that allows the network Blockchain, help to the banking institutions to have a higher performance.
