Use cases for verification were selected in the pilot test project of a DLT information sharing platform in the field of securities post-trade, jointly promoted by Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX), Japan Securities Depository Center, Inc. (JASDEC) and NEC Corporation (NEC).
Among challenges as an industry concerning securities post-trade that were submitted by project participants, we have selected three use cases to be verified in this project - "Sharing fund/SSI/basic corporate information", "Resolution of non-compatibility of fund distribution networks", and "Sharing information on borrowing/lending fee/collateral interest and dividend equivalent in stock borrowing and lending transactions". We will continue to verify these three use cases.
