RT @sassal0x: "Santander has become the first institution to use a public blockchain to manage all aspects of a bond issue. The company used a token on Ethereum to represent the $20m debt issuance & settled it with another set of ERC-20 tokens representing cash held in a custody account." https://t.co/EQ9Oclb07s
I’m getting so fed up with blockchain news stories.
Can we agree on a metadata standard that clearly indicates what is in the blocks, how they are chained together and who takes part in the consensus?
“This is not really digitizing a bond” says the CEO of the company involved. https://t.co/U0vnhMeaLi
It has been fantastic to work with a forward looking leader like @_JohnWhelan on this @bancosantander digital investment banking project. The really exciting thing is that the journey is just beginning!

At the bank, we are not interested in cryptocurrencies directly. The technology is the same underneath, but we are interested and our customers are interested in traditional dollars, euros, pounds and that’s our space.
I hate banks and how they think and their controlling/manipulating/abusing ways of the people.
Never thought I'd get a chance to be a part of smart money phase. Lightning striking twice. I believe this kind of experimentation will fuel potentially a mini fomo/bubble powered by financial institutions playing a game of "first mover" on this ecosystem. Kind of like playing a game of flinch. Who knows...just a speculative hunch.
