CPMI publishes an analytical framework for DLT
By Giovanni Campi and Ignasi Guardans
The Committee on Payment and Market Infrastructures (CPMI) of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) recently released a report that focuses on the potential impact of distributed ledger technology (DLT) on payment, clearing and settlement.
In providing an analytical framework to approach DLT, CPMI hopes to enhance authorities and market participants’ understanding of this technology. The report reviews the potential implication of DLT for the efficiency and safety of payment, clearing and settlement activities. The last part also analyzes broader implications of DLT for financial markets, in terms of market architecture and connectivity.
