Liink Network Helps Financial Institutions Innovate Payments Economics
New Frontiers in Payments
- Blockchain technology is helping financial services firms around the world share information securely in real-time and foster greater collaboration.
- One area of focus for blockchain is modernizing payments, but there are opportunities for financial services firms to leverage this technology on a wider scale to transform their business models.
- In 2020, J.P. Morgan launched Onyx, a business unit dedicated to building next-generation payment capabilities. One of Onyx’s solutions is Liink – a production-grade, blockchain network that is designed to facilitate the transfer of payments-related information.
- A major obstacle to faster, cheaper payments is the lack of information traveling alongside the payments, causing delays and friction. Liink connects banks securely in a peer-to-peer network so participants can get information quicker.
- Liink’s first application was Resolve, which helps banks to remedy compliance-related queries for cross-border payments. Previously, manually obtaining names and checking addresses could take days if not weeks. With Resolve information can be gained in minutes. Meanwhile, Liink’s Confirm application allows institutions to validate account information before sending a transaction and reduce the chance of returns.
- To date, over 400 banks have signed up to the Liink platform. Looking ahead, Liink will enable third parties to build their applications and deploy them though the network across the consortium of banks.
