BREAKING: UK Financial Regulator Builds Blockchain App on R3's Corda

  • The U.K.’s chief financial markets regulator has helped develop a new app using blockchain consortium R3’s Corda distributed ledger platform.
  • Announced today, the prototype – focused on the reporting of mortgage transactions – was revealed to have been built with input from the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and another unnamed banking institution.
  • To date, the FCA has welcomed a number of startups into its regulatory “sandbox,” which allows for the testing of financial products and services in a limited setting.
