About

Hi we’re UBS Blockchain!


UBS first made moves in the world of Blockchain in 2015, since then they contained to release reports on the topic of Blockchain and Crypto currencies.

In March 2015, they launched the Crypto 2.0 Pathfinder Program and in the time since, they have been studying blockchain.

UBS is one of the co-founders of the Utility Settlement Coin consortium, now called Fnality International. The token will work as both a payment mechanism and messenger that carriers all required data to complete a cross-border trade.

UBS CEO Ermotti said during an interview in June 2018, that blockchain technology “will be as crucial and disruptive, and changing as regulation was in the last 10 years.”

UBS is also a member of the we.trade trade finance platform. In October 2019, it was announced that UBS is now providing services to European SMEs on the we.trade platform. Before this, it was a part of the “Batavia consortium” before that joined forces with we.trade
