IBM launches blockchain global payment network

IBM has released its Blockchain World Wire, a real-time global payments network for regulated financial institutions.

The blockchain network is designed to optimize and accelerate foreign exchange, cross border payments and remittance. World Wire allows users to choose between different digital assets for settlement. Participants can also message, clear and settle payments on the single, unified network.

IBM issued the blockchain network to 72 counties, with 47 currencies and 44 banking endpoints. Local regulations will guide activation. IBM continues to grow the network.

World Wire aims to cut out the complexities of conventional correspondent backing. With what IBM calls “stable coins,” the blockchain is designed to improve operational efficiency and liquidity management while streamlining payment reconciliation.
