Voltron is coming and it’s coming this year. Voltron is a trade finance platform built on R3’s Corda blockchain. We first heard of Voltron back in May of 2018 when HSBC and ING (Ripple/R3/XRP connection) had announced that they have used Corda to execute a trade finance transaction. This deal facilitated the shipment of soybeans between different subsidiaries in the global supply-chain network of Cargill. Voltron will enable banks to speed up financing decisions and enhance the customer experience. Voltron enables finance groups to provide letter credit transactions as a blockchain solution. It is 2019, everything is about speed!
