Citi conducted a proof-of-concept trial on Avalanche’s Spruce in collaboration with established financial titans WisdomTree and Wellington Management, per a news release. For large financial organizations wishing to leverage public blockchain technology, Spruce is an Evergreen subnet.

The latest venture from a Wall Street behemoth seeking to go deeper into the use cases of blockchain adoption is Citi’s entry into the network. In an effort to improve trade execution and settlement efficiency, TradFi companies including T. Rowe Price, WisdomTree, Wellington Management, and Cumberland joined the network in April of last year.

End-to-end token transfers, secondary transfers to facilitate trading, and the validation of new capabilities through collateralized loans were all included in Citi’s latest test.


According to the news release, the bank’s proof-of-concept showed how smart contracts can allow for more automation as well as possibly improve compliance and controls for issuers and investors.

Nisha Surendran, emerging solutions head for Citi Digital Assets, stated, “We believe that by testing the tokenization of private assets, we are exploring the feasibility to open-up new operating models and create efficiencies for the broader market.”CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
