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!

Billionaire owners like Elon Musk, Larry Fink (BlackRock), and Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan Chase) often have a strong influence on the hidden agendas surrounding the paradigm shift brought about by cryptocurrency and emerging Web3 technologies. CryptoCaster stands apart. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to please. Our journalism is dedicated to serving the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions, not profit motives.

We avoid the pitfall of much U.S. and global media, which often resorts to false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency guide everything we do, we recognize that there is a right and wrong stance in the fight against fiat global banking interests and the monetary reconstruction driven by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance, and Ripple crises, we’re not afraid to name names and uncover the truth. As a crypto sentinel, we offer a fresh, outsider perspective on global monetary disruption—something often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
