SWIFT completes blockchain trial

posted 3 months ago
Interbank messaging platform Swift has completed a blockchain proof-of-concept in partnership with startup SmartContract.

The proof-of-concept, revealed today, is the first project to use SmartContract’s ChainLink v1.0, which lets users connect smart contracts to data feeds, web APIs and a number of payment methods.

Founded last year, New York-based SmartContract was one of several blockchain startups to be selected by Swift to win a contract at its 2016 Sibos conference. A representative of Swift confirmed to CoinDesk that it is a SmartContract customer. Swift is currently working on multiple blockchain projects with various vendors.
