Blockchain for non-payments

Matchi Trend Report - Digital Account Origination

Fintechs have leveraged the power of blockchain technology not just to create cryptocurrencies but also developed applications to use the other elements of immutability for smart contracts, proof of ownership, authentication and intellectual property management  

Blockchain technology has captured the imagination of the financial world due to its association with cryptocurrencies (especially Bitcoin) and the promise of instant, secure transactions at very low cost. However, there is increasing interest in the blockchain technology itself rather than the cryptocurrencies it enables. The elements of blockchain technology, particularly its immutability, has lent itself to other applications where this property is crucial, viz. contracts and proof of ownership

Financial services companies are beginning to recognise that non-payment transactions are also expensive due to either the volume of transactions, the use of human intervention or the introduction of errors and its subsequent rework. Fintechs have exploited these blockchain properties and developed applications that range from authentication to intellectual property management
