Traditional Banks Join Forces to Launch Blockchain Digital Bond Platform

Credit Agricole CIB, a French investment bank, and SEB, a Swedish bank, are collaborating to develop a blockchain-based platform for digital bonds, marking a joint effort in traditional finance in Europe.

This platform will provide companies with the opportunity to issue digital bonds on a blockchain network to enhance efficiency and enable real-time data synchronization. Users will be able to manage securities and raise capital through smart contracts.

It is important to note that other similar projects are underway to apply blockchain technology to traditional markets, including Euroclear’s plan to launch a platform for trading securities on a distributed ledger later this year.

No information has been disclosed about sobond’s start date or availability, and the banks have not responded to requests for comment.

CIB, headquartered in Paris, and SEB, based in Stockholm, have introduced a “Proof of Climate awaReness” validation protocol that encourages users to minimize their environmental impact.

The protocol is designed to promote energy consumption levels similar to those of non-blockchain systems. Nodes on the platform will be rewarded based on their efforts, with the formula linked to their environmental impact.

The platform’s environmental impact is assessed using France’s APL Data Center and certified by SGS.

According to Decrypt, the platform is the first global capital market use case to operate under the Proof of Climate awaReness protocol.
