Friction-free trading and stripping out a cost, risk, and operational inefficiencies are enabled through DMI. A major step is shown to enable digitalization and friction-free trading globally through this new approach.
Calastone has already made an announcement about the completion of the first phase for testing feasibility. This feasibility is related to blockchain technology for developing a common global marketplace. The global marketplace can be for trading and settlements of funds.
A completely mutualized global funds marketplace can be accessed through DMI. Small scale financial services organizations can access the marketplace. Not only the small scale financial services organizations, but also financial services organizations of any size can access the marketplace. Servicing of funds along with real-time trading and settlement can be carried out.
Various key points of friction were solved in no time through DMI during its launching. They are completely automated. They aren’t only completely automated, but they are visible too. Bringing a new service called Sub-Register is a purpose behind DMI. A shared and real-time view is created through the service. History of the registers between trading partners is also created.
