South African agencies working to explore blockchain payments

South African Reserve Bank and Fintech firm completed the proof-of-concept project and now moving toward a regulatory framework.

Blockchain technology adoption is increasing rapidly in almost every country. At present, 80% of Central Banks are involved in blockchain technology use cases study and also development to introduce a better payment system. However, there are still many questions before the adoption of this technology but in this initial phase, development works are a much mandatory part of the adoption.

On 6 April, Bloomberg reported that the Intergovernmental Fintech Working Group and  South African Reserve Bank recently completed a collaborative proof-of-concept project to bring the policy and regulatory provisions of introducing the DLT (distributed ledger technology). 

This experimental project is named “Khoka 2”. Khoka 2 aimed to facilitate the settlement of funds with the use of blockchain technology-based tokens under a particular policy, which has to be introduced after the next initiative of these agencies.

The project experiment pointed out that there is a need for some necessary instruction on policies, which further needed engagement of the policymakers and regulators in the country.

So alternatively we can say that the experiment of this project confirmed the success rate to perform the function as a payment system but here there is better support from the stakeholders and financial policies to make things genuine to use at the official level. 

“A transition to a DLT-based system requires careful planning and execution and may involve running a DLT-based system in parallel to the existing system for a while, perhaps indefinitely,” they explained.

Lesetja Kganyago, governor at the Central Bank, commented on the outcomes of this project experiment and noted that DLT use cases need regulatory approval as a priority.

“The insights gained through practical exploration should lead to greater regulatory clarity — both for innovators and for regulators — and should be in the broader interest of ensuring a level playing field for all market participants.”

So in this way statements from the Central Bank governor tried to emphasize the need to increase the engagement of policymakers and stakeholders to provide better clarity on the use of DLT.
