(Presentation and Q&A by Ms Guo Zhiling)


As FinTech continues to gain momentum, distributed ledger technology (DLT) shows tremendous potential in revolutionizing interbank payments processing. Bank of Canada’s Jasper, European Central Bank and Bank of Japan’s Stella, and MAS’s Ubin projects are recent examples of central banks experimenting with DLT in payment clearing and settlement. The key implementation challenges include preserving transactional privacy and resolving gridlocks in a decentralized manner. This talk will focus on both technical solutions and economic incentives to address such design challenges in the DLT environment.
