Corda Proof-of-Concept Consensus for SWIFT

SWIFT enlists the R3 built blockchain platform, Corda, for a PoC (proof-of-concept) GPI Link test run.

Link is a portal to connect e-commerce and trading rostrums with the SWIFT GPI. This portal supports APIs, SWIFT, and ISO standards. It capacitates round-the-clock monitoring, payment flow control, and movement of goods by trading platforms. It serves to channel members of the GPI to different trade platforms and facilitate payments, payer authentication, credit approval, and tracking.

Fiat will be used on the PoC settlement system and the GPI based ‘off-ledger’ payment settlement is enabled. This initial phase of the PoC will occur on Corda. Companies meshed with R3’s Corda will have the capacity to authorize payments from their own banks through GPI Link. GPI payments will be accomplished by banks, and upon completion, credit notifications will be relayed back to trade platforms by GPI Link.

In the beginning, PoC will support Corda, but in the future, it will stretch to cover other DLT, non-DLT, and e-commerce systems.

A prototype of SWIFT’s PoC will be presented in London’s Sibos on September 2019.

Banking Institutions from Across the World Adopting Corda

Japan’s SBI Holdings teams up with the blockchain startup to promote Corda in Asian markets. German, French, and Dutch banks are using R3’s Corda for their Euro Debt Solution. In France, there are 26 companies and five banks which completed a KYC trial through Corda.

XRP, the third largest cryptocurrency, was stuck in the bear trap with no room for any bullish movement, while Stellar Lumens [XLM], which performed well at the start of the bull run, shared a similar fate to that of XRP. XRP 1 day Source: TradingView The one-day chart for XRP showed a downtrend that pulled the price from $0.517 to $0.371, while the long term support held at $0.291. The Bollinger bands moved parallelly due to the continuous sideways movement of the market. The Chaikin Money Flow indicator was below the zero line, as the capital leaving the market was much more than the capital coming into the market. The Awesome Oscillator recorded low amplitudes due to the lack of market momentum in the XRP ecosystem. XLM 1 day Source: TradingView XLM’s one day graph saw a drop in price from $0,278 to $0.138, while the long term support was at $0.074.
