The Bank of England Staff Paper 670 (2017) characterizes DLT as both a radical innovation (i.e. one that has high impact), as well as a systemic one (i.e. one that affects the entire value chain and not just one or a few components). But at this stage, it’s not clear how DLT might ultimately affect the post trade sector – whether the impact will be radical and/or systemic. This panel bring together representatives from the public and private sector to discuss the current use of blockchain for payments, clearing, and settlement activities and what the potential landscape may look like in the near and distant future.
