SINGAPORE, LONDON, NEW YORK - With contributions from Zerado, FinTech Network have produced a whitepaper that looks at smart contracts and how they could improve efficiencies within the banking sector. The whitepaper highlights:

  • How smart contracts aim to provide security that is superior to traditional contract law and ways they can reduce other transactional and administrative costs
  • The workings of Ethereum as one of the best examples of smart contracts in practice
  • Ways that smart contracts could benefit areas such as mortgages, clearing and settlement, KYC & bonds
  • How challenges with conceptual misalignment, inflexibility, contractual secrecy and legal jurisdiction could hinder the use of smart contracts in financial services
