For example, IBM said that in the future, its service could make it possible for a farmer in Samoa to enter into a trade contract with a buyer in Indonesia, while covering all aspects of their transaction, not just the payment.
The payment solution from IBM is already effective and processing live transactions in 12 countries across the Pacific Islands, United Kingdom and Australia. And blockchain will be used to record the whole thing from the farmer's collateral to letters of credit to pay. IBM informed that it is closely working with Spain's BBVA, Indonesia's Bank Danamon and Australia's National Australia Bank to implement solutions using blockchain. It will process up to 60% of all cross-border payments in the South Pacific's retail foreign exchange corridors including Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga by early next year.
"The combination of IBM's banking and financial services expertise along with IBM Cloud has allowed Dream Payments to build and scale its cloud infrastructure, right down to bare metal hardware access, to maintain bank-grade security, PCI compliance and data sovereignty", said Chad Whittaker, CIO of Dream Payments. Overall the existing global payment solutions are time consuming, costly and error-prone. Through KlickEx, the Pacific has had relatively low-priced, real-time, multi-currency payments for most of the past decade, and this project was a natural next step following our work to create seamless and borderless payments across the Pacific.
