Peer to Peer Exchange Development Company
Blockchain technology is a method of recording and confirming transactions. Here, instead of a centralized platform, participants each hold a complete record of transactions through peer to peer verification of transactions. This means there is no central recording system rather than each participant keeps a record of all transactions ever made. This is the same system which allows Bitcoin to operate with no central body.
Blockchain has a great potential to cut inefficiencies in the share settlement function. As trades are settled by peer confirmation, there is no need for a clearinghouse, auditors to verify trades and custodians to ensure a fund has been shares say they hold. Essentially, this is cutting out the middleman in the back office. This means fewer costs in record keeping and in turn fewer costs to trading on the platforms. Given the high costs of getting a third party to audit, record keeps and/or verify trades these costs are substantial.
