Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)

Understanding the potential to transform the financial industry.

Progressing technology through industry initiatives

All across the financial services industry, DLT is developing at pace. Speculation surrounding the technology is rapidly being replaced by concrete research and development outputs in the form of proofs of concept, simulations and prototypes. At SWIFT, we have been extensively analysing and testing the potential application of blockchain technology in the financial industry. 

Over the past few years, we have witnessed a number of advancements with the technology, addressing many of the critical requirements necessary for the DLT to potentially achieve industry-wide adoption.
