Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX) and Nomura Research Insitute have agreed to jointly begin conducting proof of concept (PoC) tests for blockchain, or distributed ledger, technology.
Blockchain technology is gaining attention worldwide as one of the most promising aspects of Fintech that could be applied to constructing shared infrastructure to provide high availability and reliability at low cost. However, there are issues to be resolved in the technology, and it will need to be continually verified and improved before actual application in financial business operations.
JPX will conduct PoC test in cooperation with Nomura Research Insitute to evaluate the limits and possibilities of the technology in markets that have low transaction data volume.
