Project Tridecagon – Explores DLT solutions for CSD – RTGS linkage

The Asian Development Bank (ADB), in conjunction with R3, Consensys, Soramitsu and Fujitsu, explored possible DLT (distributed ledger technology) solutions to improve the efficiency of the CSIF (Cross-Border Settlement Infrastructure Forum)’s CSD (central securities depositories) – RTGS (real-time gross settlement systems) Linkage model, which spans the ASEAN +3 group. The project involved interconnecting three different DLT technologies:  Corda, Hyperledger Besu (Ethereum) and Hyperledger Iroha. Fujitsu deployed its ConnectionChain solution based on Hyperledger Cacti to integrate the three DLTs.
