This project will be done in collaboration with Asia’s leading exchange group, Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX).

“NRI is thrilled to work with JPX and our partners in identifying the potential of blockchain across the securities industry,” said Minoru Yokote, Senior Managing Director of NRI. “As the industry increasingly looks towards what blockchain can provide to enhance operations and technology, we are focused on determining all the challenges and potential benefits of blockchain for future applications across the securities industry.”

Through this partnership, NRI and JPX will assess the usability as well as the challenges of Blockchain technology when applied to securities markets. Along with JPX, the PoC will be supported by Nomura Securities, SBI Securities, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group and others, to ensure the study is explored from various perspectives. The PoC will mainly examine business scenarios and validation items, and prepare prototype systems based on those scenarios. Currency Port Limited will also join the PoC to contribute its Blockchain technology.

This project is a continuance of NRI’s previous effort to promote open innovation in October, 2015 when it established its first PoC on Blockchain with Nomura Securities. The study focused on two main characteristics of Blockchain – the ability to decentralize information, and the ability to resist data tampering when managing stockholders’ accounts. The results of the study have proven that Blockchain technology allows anti-tampering stock information management and gets rid of the need for reconciliation between stockholders.

The second phase of the Blockchain PoC is scheduled to run from April to the end of June 2016.
