Cryptocurrency and Blockchain

In May 2019, SocGen completed a trial transaction of €100 million worth of tokenized covered bonds between two internal parties using the Ethereum blockchain. This experiment, dubbed an "internal startup" by SocGen, was one of many the company regularly conducts. It earned the highest credit rating from Moody's Investor Service and Fitch Ratings, two respected credit rating and risk analysis firms. According to a statement published by SocGen the month before, this experiment was meant to explore "a more efficient process for bond issuance."[1][2]
