Tassat Generates Record Interest From More than 200 Banks in the Digital Interbank Network™ and Names New CEO
Tassat Group Inc., sponsor of the Digital Interbank Network (The Network), today announced that they are in discussions with more than 200 banks about joining The Network, which will enable member banks to execute secure and instantaneous real-time payments and other banking services between their commercial customers, 24/7/365, via private, permissioned blockchains.
Western Alliance Bank transferred $1.1 million digital dollars to Coastal Community Bank in an inaugural demonstration last week of a new payment rail built on blockchain technology.
More than 100 U.S. banks watched the real-time transfer between $50 billion Western Alliance Bank and $1.5 billion Coastal Community Bank Dec. 16.. The Digital Interbank Network — owned and governed by member banks and slated to go live in 2022 — is built on blockchain by New York-based Tassat Group, the network’s sponsor, which said it was the first transfer of digital dollars between banks.
Financial technology platform Tassat will roll out a platform that uses blockchain to allow bank customers to send each other payments that would usually take days in a matter of minutes.
New York-based Tassat announced plans to launch the network some time next year during a presentation Thursday in New York. Western Alliance Bancorp sent Coastal Community Bank $1.1 million across the network in a demonstration at the Times Center on 41st Street. Silver and blue balloons rained down on the stage once the transaction was complete.
