citi launches blockchain-based payments service with nasdaq for private equity

A major U.S. bank and financial exchange have married two blockchain-based systems to enable clients who are raising funds or swapping private shares through Nasdaq to take advantage of payment services provided by Citi.The Citi-Nasdaq partnership is one of the first examples of an enterprise blockchain system to enter production. Citi says the project went live on Monday in an announcement at the annual Consensus conference in New York City.Over the past year, many banks and financial institutions have completed proofs of concept for projects that rely on blockchain or distributed ledger technology. But so far, few of those projects have graduated into functioning systems.Nasdaq launched a blockchain-based platform called Linq in 2015 designed for private equity, but the system lacks the

rising etf usage presents opportunities for active investors, citi says

Sharp-eyed investors are buying up stocks ahead of their anticipated inclusion in key stock indexes, on expectations of the onslaught of passive funds flowing into them and boosting prices once the inclusion is finalised, according to new research from Citi.The paper, by a team of US equity strategists led by Robert Buckland, examines the "seismic shift" in global equity markets, as hundreds of billions globally flows out of managed investment vehicles and into passive investments, which are carefully calibrated to mirror the composition and performance of key indexes.
The changes caused by passive investing provide opportunities for active traders to exploit, argues a new Citi analysis.  Photo: BloombergPassive funds offer exposure to equities for far lower management fees than is the c

corporate titans unite to build an enterprise version of the ethereum blockchain

Over the last two years, Ethereum, a blockchain-based platform for self-executing contracts and other applications, has attracted many admirers in the corporate world. The platform—a peer-to-peer network similar to the one that runs Bitcoin—is already supporting decentralized prediction markets, autonomously-run lotteries, and a host of governance tools. And there is much speculation that the same building blocks could be used to replicate and streamline services offered by financial institutions, insurance agencies, and healthcare providers, to name but a few. Most of the of the titans in these industries, however, have kept their distance—watching this radical new technology take shape while waiting to see whether it would embrace the needs of the companies that might want to build on it

shipping giant tests ibm's blockchain tech to track cargo

According to the shipping giant, a single container making its way from East Africa to Europe could require stamps and approvals from as many as 30 people. By the time it reaches its destination, it would have gone through over 200 different interactions. By using blockchain, Maersk can get rid of all the paperwork and make the process smoother and faster.The New York Times says when customs officials upload a copy of a signed document approving a container to the blockchain, everybody involved would be able to see it. They could just check the blockchain if anything seems amiss instead of digging through mountains of paperwork. Thus far, the company has already used IBM's technology to ship flowers from Kenya, oranges from California and pineapples from Colombia. But it could take the shi
