据报道欧洲投资银行将与区块链技术发行债券

The European Investment Bank, an international financial institution owned by European Union member states, is reportedly exploring blockchain technology for issuing digital bonds.

According to a Tuesday Bloomberg report, the EIB has hired major global banks like Goldman Sachs, Banco Santander and Societe Generale to look at a potential deal involving a euro-denominated bond issued on a blockchain.

Citing a person familiar with the matter, Bloomberg states that the EIB is planning to deploy blockchain technology for the registration and settlement of digital bonds. Investor meetings for the inaugural sale will reportely start on April 15 and continue for several weeks.

The EIB did not immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request for comment.

区块链, the underlying technology of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (比特币) 和以太 (ETH), has been increasingly implemented in the bond market in recent years. 根据汇丰银行, blockchain presents cost savings opportunities of “more than 10x” for the bond market, reducing the need for intermediaries and enabling issuance by smaller projects.

As the European Union’s investment arm, the EIB has often been at the forefront of innovation in Europe’s debt capital markets. 早在 2007, the EIB issued the world’s first green bond, labeled a Climate Awareness Bond.

The news comes as the European Central Bank prepares to decide on whether it will begin exploring a digital euro. 三月下旬, ECB President Christine Lagarde suggested that the digital euro initiative would take at least four years, should the bank decide to proceed with a pilot.
