R3 teams up with Instimatch Global
R3 enterprise blockchain company teams up with Instimatch Global which is a digital network for institutional money market lending.
Instimatch is currently testing R3’s Corda Settler, and its ability to settle transactions with XRP is a pilot with 50 banks.
Corda Settler will give companies a brand new way of moving crypto and traditional assets on a distributed ledger. The platform supports XRP as the very first crypto payment rail.
Integrating Corda Settler
Instimatch is currently building a dApp that will integrate Corda Settler in order to power transactions in real time.
“Coupling the DApp with the latest settlement API (R3 Settler/XRP), we can offer the high speed of payments necessary for the execution of intraday trades. Our money market offering in R3 Corda is a highly secure, GDPR compliant DApp allowing banks, family offices, corporations, utilities, etc. to exchange liquidity amongst each other,” Instimatch says.
The official notes continue and say that “This DApp offers the modern alternative to voice broking and replaces our present, centralized database version which has seen a volume of over 1 Billion USD equivalent and 50 Banks are on-boarded.”
The pilot with the banks is live, according to XRP Research Center but the names of the banks which are involved in the project is not out yet.
