Citigroup’s New Citi Token Service and How it is Impacting Customers
However, companies like Citigroup are actively addressing these challenges. Two months ago, Citigroup announced Citi Token Services. The platform employs blockchain and smart contract technologies to provide digital asset solutions tailored for institutional clients by integrating tokenised deposits and smart contracts into Citi's global network and enhancing fundamental cash management and trade finance capabilities. The technology utilised in the pilot offers a fully digital process for buyers and sellers, featuring instant payment capabilities; this will significantly decrease transaction processing times, shifting from days to minutes.
The benefits observed by these companies are considerable, ranging from increased operational efficiency to enhanced security and access to new markets. Adopting cryptoassets is not just a technological upgrade but a strategic move.
