Kynetix collaborates with Imperial College London to put blockchain theory into practice


Kynetix, the leading provider of solutions which enable physical commodities to be represented electronically in the financial and banking world, has partnered with Imperial College London to develop the first commodity-specific blockchain operating model complete with working software.






The partnership began with the creation of a Target Operating Model for a blockchain-centric commodities platform. This has now been implemented within Sentinel, Kynetix’s specialist commodity title and post trade platform.

Scott Riley, Blockchain Lead for Kynetix commented: “There is a lot of focus on distributed ledger technology (DLT), particularly in the payments and settlement areas; however, there is still a lot of ambiguity around specific details such as liquidity and interfacing with fiat currency systems. What we see is a unique opportunity to address some inherent challenges in the physical commodities world which are not dependant on legacy securities infrastructure. The two distinct work streams we are addressing with Imperial College are high-payback use cases. These allow our consortium participants to take real advantage of pragmatic DLT based solutions.”

Matt Dolton, Director at Kynetix added,

“Our years of experience in delivering solutions that bring trust and transparency to commodity exchanges and the banking world gives us real insight. It seems to us that the commodities world has an opportunity to jump ahead and embrace the latest technology advances to provide business advantage for the specialist commodities industry. We’re delighted to be working with the thought leaders at Imperial College to create solutions for real world challenges.”

Prof William Knottenbelt, Director of the Imperial College Centre for Cryptocurrency Research and Engineering, noted

“Working on innovative real-world use cases for blockchain technology is a key focus for us. We are delighted to be working closely with Kynetix in this fascinating application space.”
