Shared Know-Your-Customer on Blockchain

Presented by SGInnovate

Today, banks and large financial institutions around the world are struggling to meet the ever-increasing scale and rate of regulatory change. Processes for Know-Your-Customer (KYC) compliance, in particular, are costly and time-consuming with huge fines for non-compliance today. The value proposition of blockchain for KYC becomes readily apparent.

Established in 2016, the IBM Centre for Blockchain Innovation was set up in Singapore to advance the practice and development of blockchain technologies in the region. Since its inception, the lab has engaged in projects in various areas such as trade logistics, finance, compliance, and so on.  

Join us at SGInnovate to see what IBM is thinking of - to deliver cost savings, increased speed and reduced risk - in developing a KYC blockchain system which is one of the many exciting projects at IBM Research.
