Goldman Sachs Predicts Surge in Blockchain-based Asset Trading

The partnership between RYVYL and R3 comes at a time when Goldman Sachs, a banking giant, anticipates a significant increase in trading volumes of blockchain-based assets in the coming years. Mathew McDermott, the investment bank’s global head of digital assets, stated that while bitcoin has experienced a 50% surge this quarter, the focus extends beyond cryptocurrencies. Goldman Sachs plans to develop blockchain-based tokens representing traditional assets like bonds. McDermott highlighted a growing appetite for digital assets, which has seen substantial growth over the past year.

The Potential of Blockchain Technology in Financial Markets

Banks have been exploring the potential of blockchain technology to trade assets beyond cryptocurrencies for several years. Implementing this on a large scale would require a major overhaul of the technology supporting financial markets. McDermott argues that leveraging blockchain could offer operational and settlement efficiencies while reducing risks in financial markets. Additionally, the technology could facilitate faster and more precise transfer of collateral and liquidity between parties.

The Value of Blockchain in Tokenizing Real-World Assets

PYMNTS, a leading payments industry publication, explored the value of blockchain earlier this year in a conversation with industry experts. Pat Thelen, Vice President of Global Account Management at Ripple, highlighted the tokenization of real-world assets as an exciting opportunity. By applying blockchain technology to industries burdened by manual processes, illiquidity, and latency, significant cost reductions are possible. Thelen emphasized the potential for clever use cases to unfold as blockchain adoption progresses.
