Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)

The rapid development and spread of new technologies has been significantly transforming the financial sector. The World Bank Group published the first fintech note that looks at Distributed Ledger Technology and Blockchain, and analyzes its potential relevance for international development. Fintech -- a relatively newly-coined term which combines 'finance' and 'technology' -- describes companies or innovations that use new technologies to improve or innovate financial services.
