This is very much in line with what Mercator had discussed in the recently published Blockchain in Corporate Banking: What’s Up?. In this research we project that 2016 will be the year when corporate banking scenarios that logically align with potential blockchain strengths will be piloted. In effect, JPMC is reviewing the efficacy of faster cross border payments using the blockchain (although the article does not specifically state cyptocurrency as a vehicle).
