China Merchants Bank joins R3 distributed ledger consortium


Financial innovation firm R3 has announced the addition of China Merchants Bank (CMB) to its partnership dedicated to designing and applying distributed and shared ledger-inspired technologies (DLT) to global financial markets.






CMB, headquartered in Shenzhen, will collaborate with over 60 of the world’s largest financial institutions to develop ground-breaking commercial applications based on DLT for use across the industry, with a particular focus on the unique needs of the Chinese market.

The R3 team of financial industry veterans, technologists and blockchain and cryptocurrency experts collaborate with consortium members on research, experimentation, design and engineering to help advance this technology to meet banking requirements for identity, privacy, security, scalability, interoperability and integration with legacy systems.

Consortium members work closely with R3 to develop Corda™, its shared ledger platform specifically designed to record, manage and synchronise financial agreements between regulated financial institutions. It is heavily inspired by and captures the benefits of blockchain systems, without the design choices that make blockchains inappropriate for many banking scenarios.

Tianhong Zhou, General Manager of IT Department at CMB, commented: “It is a great pleasure for us to reach an agreement with R3. As a technologically advanced bank, China Merchants Bank has always actively explored new technologies and applied them in our businesses. Blockchain holds great potential for the banking industry, and we look forward to working together with R3 to deliver the innovation required to improve a range of financial services and processes.”

David Rutter, CEO of R3, commented: “We are delighted to establish a footprint in mainland China and welcome CMB to our rapidly growing consortium. The power of this technology lies in its potential to join institutions across borders and create an efficient and effective infrastructure that is appropriate for today’s increasingly globalised financial markets. We look forward to further growing our network in China over the coming months.”

CMB joins the global network of R3 partners united in its lab environment, the R3 Lab and Research Centre, which has quickly become a center of gravity for collaborative research and testing of distributed and shared-ledger inspired technologies.
