俄罗斯联邦储蓄银行Sberbank加入Komgo贸易金融区块链

2020-9-16 12:04

 

昨日,俄罗斯联邦储蓄银行(Sberbank)宣布,它已加入komgo区块链贸易融资网络。据俄罗斯联邦储蓄银行(Sberbank)称,其瑞士子公司迄今已为大宗商品交易融资50多亿美元。


Komgo专门从事商品贸易融资,最初是石油信用证。自2018年底的第一笔交易以来,它已经处理了超过10亿美元的交易。该公司由10家全球银行、大宗商品交易商和石油巨头共同创立。此后,它又增加了三名股东,分别是区块链开发商consensus和石油公司道达尔(Total),以及另一名未具名股东。


鉴于俄罗斯在大宗商品交易、特别是石油和天然气方面的重要性,Sberbank可能会成为komgo的重要补充。我们认为Sberbank是成员而非股东,与两个月前加入的SMBC类似。


区块链电视网总是喜欢谈论合作而不是竞争。但komgo与轮廓信用证区块链有很大程度的重叠。komgo的总部设在日内瓦,而Contour的总部则设在新加坡。鉴于Komgo已与石油巨头和大宗商品交易商投资者建立了深厚的联系,再加上与石油交易后区块链公司VAKT关系密切,该公司对大宗商品的高度关注是一个优势。


考虑到consensus是由世界上最大的农业企业支持的区块链联盟Covantis的技术合作伙伴,komgo与consensus的合作也可能是一个优势。consensus不仅是komgo的合作伙伴,也是股东和董事会代表。


Sberbank在支付、债券发行和贸易融资方面已经拥有可观的区块链利息。去年,该公司与大宗商品交易商托克(Trafigura)合作,对西伯利亚石油进行了区块链贸易融资试点。它是两年前首批参与区块链债券发行的公司之一。最近,它还参与了将旅行社支付给S7航空公司的费用标记化。

 

Yesterday Russia’s Sberbank announced that it had joined the komgo blockchain trade finance network. According to Sberbank, its Swiss subsidiary has financed more than $5 billion in commodity trades to date.

Komgo specializes in commodity trade finance, initially letters of credit for oil. Since the first transaction in late 2018, it has processed well over a billion dollars of trades. Ten global banks founded the company, alongside commodity traders and oil majors. Since then, it added three more shareholders in blockchain developer ConsenSys, oil company Total, and another un-named shareholder.

Given Russia’s importance for commodity trading and oil and gas in particular, Sberbank is potentially an important addition for komgo. We believe Sberbank is a member rather than a shareholder, similar to SMBC, which joined two months ago.

Blockchain networks always like to talk about coopetition rather than competition. But komgo overlaps with the Contour letter of credit blockchain to a significant extent. While komgo is based in one major commodities hub, Geneva, Contour is based in another, Singapore. Komgo’s laser focus on commodities is an advantage given it already has deep connections to the sector with oil major and commodity trader investors plus its close relationship with VAKT, the oil post trade blockchain.

And komgo’s association with ConsenSys may also be an advantage given that ConsenSys is the technology partner of Covantis, the blockchain consortium backed by the world’s largest agribusiness firms. ConsenSys isn’t just a partner of komgo, it’s also a shareholder and has board representation.

Sberbank already has significant blockchain interests across payments, bond issuance and trade finance. Last year it ran a blockchain trade finance trial for Siberian oil with commodity trader Trafigura. It was one of the first firms to be involved in bonds issued using blockchain well over two years ago. And more recently, it was involved in tokenizing travel agent payments to the S7 airline.
