Blockchain can bring recordkeeping to 21st century with the technological influence that is going to bring. Before they make use of this, financial firms may need to know whether the data can be secretly kept or not. JPMorgan Chase and CO banker Blythe Masters have a startup which says they have found solution for ensuring that the data is kept as secret. Digital Asset Holdings when masters are chief executive officer, then they are deploying fingerprints for addressing the issue. These are the fingerprints that are usually shared to all users of the given blockchain that only the trusted parties get to decipher them.
They say that their major idea is to ensure private, market-moving, contractual and sensitive data is kept private. They are ensuring that they do give prime importance to privacy which is the major thing that the financial institutions may be very much concerned about.
This is the approach that resembles so much to the Digital Asset Competitor R3 that they are developing that in the beginning of this year. Richard Gendal Brown, former executive architect who is part of industry innovation as well as business development at IBM build the blockchain platform for company named corda that has got the ability for restricting the information that it is sharing among the users. R3 released source code of Corda last week to public.
All these movements and activities that happen in the market are really good signs. The Digital asset development like Chain and R3 have released the code to public and popular cryptographers have joined the blockchain startups which says that it is an indication for the software to gain more traction.
Digital Asset clients include depository trust and clearing corp, Australian stock exchange. Back office entity which clears as well as settles all the bond trades and US stock is very important. Both these are there in the forefront for checking whether the systems can be switched to the blockchain to the cut settlement and the payment times from three days to some minutes. Digital Asset hopes to have the version of the system ready for use by 2017 as per what the masters have said. It is going to be a revolution the economic niche as the whole book keeping is going to happen in much sophisticated, digitized but safest way possible.
The digital asset system has described that two parts associated with transaction is required for anyone for having an overall idea of what is actually happening. The first thing to know is transaction along with counterparty and price. There are other details which are known only to user. This is the part which is usually stored on local server of the bank. Finger print is the second part that can be viewed by all but all cannot interpret.
Fingerprints are also called as hash and are significant as they represent transaction in the given market. For user to actually trust this the system should be authorizing only the ones who are meant to. This is done through the finger print.
