R3 and Axoni, along with seven buy and sell side firms, are working to explore ways that blockchain technology can be used to simplify reference data processes.

The prototype was created using Axoni Core, the firm’s proprietary distributed ledger software, to simulate the collaborative management of reference data, as well as the use of that reference data for corporate bond issuance.
The technology is designed to enable participants to interact with reference data after issuance, with any proposed changes requiring validation by the underwriter to ensure the ledger provided a single, immutable record of all data related to the bond.
