HSBC Voltron:

The Voltron platform delivers a more quick method to process and settle invoices using by using permissioned blockchain technology. The permissioned blockchain stops the transactional data from being shared with everyone but instead, the data is shared with only consented users. The platform decreases the time that is usually required for the total process.

 

According to Joshua Kroeker, the innovation director of HSBC, the platform would mostly impact the process timing. Thus the transparency which comes with blockchain, as well as the rapid flow, would help the banks in managing their working capital as well as their cash flows. Kroeker reached out to the banks in South Korea to partner with their blockchain platform i.e. Voltron for the letters of credit.

 

HSBC’s blockchain platform was initiated in 2018 and is currently partnered with seven banks namely Standard Chartered, Bangkok Bank, BNP Paribas, ING, CTBC Holding, SEB, and NatWest. The platform is still in its pilot stage however, it shall soon be launched commercially.
