Mizuho Financial Group, Mizuho Bank and IBM Japan to Build Trade Financial Platform Using Blockchain

Mizuho Financial Group, Mizuho Bank and IBM Japan announced they are building a blockchain-based trade financing platform. With the platform, Mizuho is aiming to streamline trading operations and improve supply chain efficiency. The timely and highly secure exchange of trade documents is essential for stakeholders in the supply chain ecosystem. Digitizing trade information on the blockchain can help change the way information is shared, infusing greater trust into transactions to make it easier for parties involved in the supply chain, including exporters, importers, shippers, insurance companies, port operators and port authorities, to share critical shipment data in near real-time. Mizuho Financial Group is working with IBM Japan to ultimately conduct actual trade transactions based on Hyperledger Fabric, a blockchain framework implementation and one of the Hyperledger projects hosted by The Linux Foundation. Specifically, the project exchanges digitized letters of credit for actual trade transactions between Japan and overseas clients. As the letter of credit is digitally shared among parties including importers, exporters and their banks, it is expected to simplify the associated document creation and exchange processes, which have traditionally been time- and paper-intensive. Also, the system will enable all parties to view the latest shipment status data, which can result in reduced trade transaction and processing costs. This first phase of the project will lead to Mizuho conducting actual trade transactions using blockchain in June 2017 advancing the trade financial platform for commercialization. Mizuho continues to utilize new technologies, like blockchain, for innovative and better financial services for customers. Mizuho worked with IBM on another blockchain pilot focused on currency settlement. IBM launched IBM Blockchain on Bluemix for organizations that require blockchain networks that are trusted, open and ready for business.
