News That Brought Corda In Headlines
Recently, as part of a major announcement, R3 stated that it is enriching the pension firms with a path-breaking technological solution to create a new blockchain-based identity solution. As per the reports, the highly anticipated project will have the potential to aid savers to reclaim from a pool of a whopping sum of $48 billion, which is lost in U.K pension firms.
“We’ve built digital identity platforms with a couple of partners that are global. We’re actually working with tech partners, the likes of Gemalto [part of the Thales Group, one of the largest identity management companies in the world], who actually are members of government-organized pension funds,” quoted Abbas Ali, the chief of R3’s digital identity arm.
He further added that “The blockchain angle essentially gives users control over their digital identity … instead of a third party providing a service, a blockchain network could potentially mean citizens are in control of their identity and organizations including government departments would exist on the network and users would be able to selectively disclose parts of their identity as needed.”
The central bank of Sweden, Sveriges Riksbank, stated that it has teamed up with Accenture to pilot test its digital currency e-krona which has been created using R3’s Corda network.
We’re excited that @Cordablockchain was selected for @riksbanken’s e-krona solution with @Accenture! Read the report for more on this exciting initiative and to learn why #Corda's unique design features made it the ideal platform of choice. https://t.co/hZQpAoiExo
