Post-Trade Blockchain

BNP Paribas Quintessence  provide an interesting view on how Blockchain could affect the post-trade world:

  1. Distributed blockchain system allowing all market participants direct access to the DSD (Decentralised Securities Depositary), to the exchange and to the post trade infrastructure (clearing & settlement)
  2. Standardised post trade integration – custodians or settlement infrastructures might use the blockchain to record the ownership and trades between themselves.

The BNP Paribas comments come at a time when Nasdaq is also trailing blockchain around trade ledger processing.   Its probably also worth watching what comes out of Digital Assets.
