Title: Distributed Ledger Technology: Use cases and implementation approach via smart contracts

Teaser: Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) has gone through several disruptions. If you are unfamiliar with DLT, you may have heard of blockchain, its most widely known derivate. Amongst the touted benefits are transactions trustfulness, process automation, and decision power disintermediation. It is no wonder that recent market and institutional initiatives seek to leverage this technology via smart contract proof of concepts.

Distributed Ledger Technology: Use cases and implementation approach via smart contracts

Authors: David Hollard and Adrien Barquissau

Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) has gone through several disruptions. If you are unfamiliar with DLT, you may have heard of blockchain, its most widely known derivate. Amongst the touted benefits are transactions trustfulness, process automation, and decision power disintermediation. It is no wonder that recent market and institutional initiatives seek to leverage this technology via smart contract proof of concepts.

In this article, we introduce our approach towards smart contracts implementation, which is underpinned by our partnership with technology firm Digital Asset. We also explore some use cases of DLT, and how it can impact your strategy.

Benefits of DLT for Capital Markets

In a nutshell, DLT establishes and maintains a single version of truth that is shared amongst participants. It enhances the capital market efficiency by reducing the number and complexity of reconciliations, manual interventions, and data processing steps.

How do smart contracts work?

DLT allows for the automatic enforcement of pre-programmed rules, or contracts, when pre-defined conditions occur. This results in risk reduction, cost savings and enhanced efficiencies.

The recommended implementation approach

An end-to-end approach is recommended to help your organisation select, design, and run smart contracts. This can be done on one of the several business-as-usual (BAU) processes within the organisation.
