The World Bank has assessed what it believes to be the "world's first public blockchain" of AUD $ 100 million ($ 73 million) in an agreement to be held next week.
The two-year link, designed to improve the efficiency of automated funding for countries in extreme poverty by moving an old process of selling manual bonds, will be regulated on August 28 by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) , according to Reuters.
Nicknamed & # 39; Bondi & # 39; for Blockchain Operated New debt instrument – with a subtle sign to the famous Bondi beach in Australia "- the bond will see CBA as the only arranger and will have a return of 2.251% .The bond is designed for the" kangaroo "agreement (bonds issued in Australian dollars by foreign institutions) to 23 basis points above the reference rates of Australia, CBA added in the report.
In contrast to other similar pilots or prototypes powered by blockchain, the CBA has insisted on fact that Bondi marks the first opportunity in which a legally valid bond issue – fully issued and managed on a blockchain – is raising capital from public investors.
The World Bank issues between 50 billion and 60 billion bonds on an annual average for sustainable development in emerging countries
As previously reported by CCN, Bondi will be issued and managed on a private Ethereum blockchain managed by at the World Bank in Washington and the CBA, in Sydney. The effort will also see the World Bank using Microsoft's cloud computing platform to manage the state-of-the-art bond. Microsoft has already validated the "capabilities, security and scalability" of Ethereum for bond issues, the World Bank said earlier.
