Enabling Blockchain Financial Markets

We’re building the core fabric that will enable new and existing financial services businesses to operate ‘in the blockchain’.

Right now, traditional financial markets can’t leverage blockchain technology as there isn’t a credible solution for tokenising the fiat currencies that these markets require as a means of exchange.

Chain Financial is solving the fiat problem through our Fiat Exchange Blockchain consortium. The FEB has compliance, identity, and traceability built in at a fundamental level and can scale to support thousands of transactions per second.

The FEB enables capital held in traditional banks to flow to and from blockchain based services without the need for every service to ‘reinvent the wheel’ – the FEB provides infrastructure, compliance processes (KYC/AML and reporting flows) and banking interfaces out of the box. Multi-jurisdictional regulatory and banking relationships enable financial services built on our technology to operate globally from day one.
