上周五,JCB宣布与科技创业加速器TECHFUND建立战略合作关系。目的是为日本信用卡和支付公司建立一个使用区块链的支付系统。最大的问题是,它是在探索上市的区块链,还是只是在利用加速器来接触创业者。


TECHFUND有一些现有的区块链计划,这些计划可能与计划中的支付平台相关,也可能不相关。例如,它帮助创业者提供安全令牌,并提供一个区块链作为服务平台,使初创企业能够使用Ethereum、NEO、List和NEM更快地创建区块链应用程序。


我们试图找出JCB的工作是否会涉及公共区块链,但是没有得到及时发布的响应。


JCB是日本领先的信用卡发行公司之一,2018财年净收入为28亿美元。截至2019年3月,JCB卡可以在23个国家使用。


该公司此前还宣布了另外两项区块链计划。例如,去年12月,它与美国支付公司Paystand合作推出了B2B支付系统。


大约在同一时间,它宣布与新加坡区块链公司Keychain合作。在这种情况下,其目的是将企业区块链用于“自独占身份、数据中心安全性和安全工作流”。该声明称,其目的是提高下一代支付系统的安全性。


JCB并不是唯一一家探索区块链支付的信用卡公司。Visa有它的Visa B2B连接,它利用了区块链。万事达卡也推出了许多区块链计划,不过目前还不清楚该公司是否在其支付系统中使用了区块链。两人都是天秤座的成员,但都退出了。美国运通使用区块链作为奖励计划。


与此同时,上周五我们报道了摩根大通有一个名为“硬币和清算网络”的新产品线,专注于新时代的现金管理和支付服务。

 

On Friday, JCB announced a strategic partnership with TECHFUND, the technology startup accelerator. The purpose is for the Japanese credit card and payments firm to build a payment system using blockchain. The big question is whether it’s exploring public blockchain or is just using the accelerator to access entrepreneurs.

 

TECHFUND has some existing blockchain initiatives which may or may not be relevant to the planned payments platform. For example, it helps entrepreneurs with security token offerings and has a blockchain as a service platform to enable startups to create blockchain applications faster using Ethereum, NEO, List and NEM.

 

We reached out to find out whether the JCB work will involve public blockchains but did not receive a response in time for publication.

 

JCB is one of the leading credit card issuing companies in Japan and had net revenues of $2.8 billion in FY 2018. As of March 2019, JCB cards can be used in 23 countries.

 

The firm has previously announced two other blockchain initiatives. For example, in December, it partnered with U.S. payments firm Paystand for a B2B payments system.

 

Around the same time, it announced a partnership with Singapore blockchain firm Keychain. In that case, the purpose was to use enterprise blockchain for “self-sovereign identity, data-centric security and secure workflows”. The announcement said the aim was to increase the security of next-generation payment systems.

 

JCB is not the only card firm to explore blockchain for payments. Visa has its VISA B2B Connect, which leverages blockchain. And Mastercard has numerous blockchain initiatives, although it’s unclear whether it uses blockchain in its payments systems. Both were members of Libra but withdrew. Amex uses blockchain for its rewards program.

 

Meanwhile, on Friday we reported that JP Morgan has a new product line called “Coin and Clearing Networks” which is focused on new age cash management and payments services.
