Blockchain DLT – lessons learnt from CREST


In October 2016, Euroclear hosted a commemorative event to mark the 20th Anniversary of the successful implementation of CREST (the UK settlement system). Research undertaken by BISS Research, together with; Dr Hermann Rapp, Anglia Ruskin University, Dr Cristina Parisi, Copenhagen Business School, with assistance of Dr Marta Gasparin, Leicester University, explored the impact of its introduction.  

Gary Wright, CEO of BISS Research & co-founder of Block Asset Technologies, explores CREST’s relevance in today’s innovation technology. Does Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) have the same capability, in bringing wholesale changes to market infrastructure?
