Blockchain and its application in capital markets
Much has been written on possible blockchain applications for capital markets. One of the most frequent misgivings is whether the use of DLT can change the roles of the parties involved in the bond issuance process: investment banks and investors. The truth is that the development of blockchain-based systems is unstoppable and with the passage of time and technological maturity, it can make investors´ dreams a reality: trading bonds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether this poses a threat or presents an opportunity will depend on the adaptation and investment capacity of each entity.
