韩国的CBDC测试包括与三星的跨境试验

2021-8-15 16:42


据《韩国时报》报道,三星电子将参与韩国银行中央银行数字货币(CBDC)的模拟。两周前,韩国银行将该项目授予了韩国最大的社交网络Kakao的区块链子公司Ground X。


在模拟过程中,三星电子将以三星电子和三星SDS为代表,研究向其他手机或连接银行账户的跨境支付。三星电子的子公司S-core也将参与其中。


一位三星高管在接受《韩国时报》采访时表示:“具体来说,Kakao财团和三星集团的两家科技子公司将推出一个试点项目,旨在检查各国之间的转账和汇款,发行和分发CBDC,并监督其最终如何在虚拟环境中运行。”


稳健可靠的支付体系是韩国数字韩元的核心。三星希望利用其Galaxy智能手机测试其线下支付能力。


三星与KakaoBank、总部位于美国的区块链公司ConsenSys合作,后者为Ground X和韩国区块链初创企业Onther提供咨询。韩国银行项目将于7月28日开始,为期两年。


上个月,Ground X打败了Line Plus(部分由Naver拥有)和SK C&C,被韩国银行选定为CBDC模拟项目的领导者,预算高达440万美元。


在竞标之前,新韩银行、LG CNS等多个机构也进行了非正式的试验,希望参与竞标。现代HDAC还对潜在的CBDC进行了监管。


Ground X的合作伙伴ConsenSys正在泰国、香港、法国和澳大利亚等地开展多个CBDC项目。

Korea Times reported that Samsung will participate in the Bank of Korea (BOK) central bank digital currency (CBDC) simulations. Two weeks ago, the BOK awarded the project to Ground X, a blockchain subsidiary of Kakao, Korea’s largest social network.

During the simulations, Samsung will be represented by Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDS and will research cross-border payments to other mobile phones or connected bank accounts. Samsung affiliate S-core will also participate.

“Specifically, the Kakao consortium and Samsung Group’s two tech affiliates will launch a pilot program aimed at checking on money transfers and remittances between countries, issuing and distributing the CBDC and monitoring how that eventually works in virtual environments,” a Samsung executive told Korea Times.

A robust and reliable payment system is at the core of Korea’s digital won efforts. Samsung is hoping to use its Galaxy smartphone to test the ability to conduct offline payments.

Samsung joins KakaoBank Corp, U.S-based blockchain firm ConsenSys which is advising Ground X and Korean blockchain startup Onther on the BOK project, which is set to run for a period of up to two years and began on July 28.

Last month, Ground X was selected by the Bank of Korea to lead its CBDC simulation initiative with a budget of up to $4.4 million, beating Line Plus (part-owned by Naver) and SK C&C.

Before the bidding competition, several other organizations conducted unofficial experiments in the hope of participating in the trials, including Shinhan Bank and LG CNSHyundai HDAC also explored custody for the potential CBDC.

Ground X’s partner ConsenSys is working on multiple CBDC projects including in ThailandHong KongFrance, and Australia.
