XinFin [XDCE] Hybrid Blockchain Update

XinFin Presents at BFC2018NA
The Blockchain for Finance Conference 2018 in Boston, North America (BFC2018NA), is a fintech-focused event sponsored by KPMG, Oracle, Ernst & Young and XinFin for 150 blockchain and finance professionals.
On Nov 14 & 15, XinFin’s Co-founder and Head of Ecosystem Development, Atul Khekade, presented XinFin and TradeFinex.
In his presentation, Atul explained the reasons why many fintech and global trade enterprises are using XinFin Hybrid Blockchain platform in place of any public and private platforms which were way too public or private respectively. Atul explained that private blockchains didn’t have a public trust layer and the public blockchains were too public or decentralized for the enterprises to work with them.
XinFin’s hybrid architecture is enterprise-friendly and has the least interference with law and compliance systems. Built on the same virtual machine specifications of Ethereum, yet operating independent of Ethereum, XinFin Hybrid Blockchain runs on delegated proof of consensus where the existing set of validators approve the next delegators coming in and KYC/AML are present on the nodes itself.
Atul shared how TradeFinex and that the XinFin protocol can speak the language of all core banking systems, including SWIFT which is used globally for interbank transfers. The XinFin protocol is also designed to be interoperable with FIAT currencies and stable coins.
Since Sept 2018, XinFin was accepted to participate in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) Sandbox to live-test the TradeFinex Platform. This enables TradeFinex to independently evaluate, monitor, and live-test solutions with ADGM clients under full compliance and regulatory frameworks.
Atul concluded his presentation by extending an invitation to the audience and sponsors to access the TradeFinex set of APIs. He invited them to have platforms styled with XinFin’s common data standard which includes XinFin’s decentralized credit data across different financial technologies, banks, which works with KYC data. XinFin is also implementing zero-knowledge proofs.
