Quant jumps 20% on partnership with Bank of England and BIS for CBDC project.

Quant, a blockchain platform that helps financial institutions incorporate digital currencies into their businesses, saw a 20% increase in the value of its native currency on June 15 after announcing a partnership with the Bank of England for Project Rosalind. Project Rosalind is a central bank digital currency (CBDC) initiative led by the Bank for International Settlements and the Bank of England, which aims to explore the implementation of APIs in CBDC systems to facilitate retail payments.

Quant Collaborates With BIS And The Bank Of England

Project Rosalind focuses on leveraging APIs in CBDCs and investigating innovative use cases for the technology. The project uses a collaborative model between the public and private sectors, with the public sector providing the needed infrastructure, and the private sector responsible for developing consumer applications. Quant contributed to the development of Project Rosalind by designing and developing API functionalities that enable programmability within the private sector.

Following the announcement of their contribution, QUANT’s value increased by 20%, reversing losses from earlier in the week. Besides designing, Quant also provided the underlying infrastructure and blockchain platform needed for the interoperability of central bank ledgers.

Gilbert Verdian, Founder and CEO of Quant, expressed enthusiasm about the potential of CBDCs, stating:

“For the first time, money is ready for the digital age. A CBDC will enable citizens and businesses to automate cumbersome payments and processes and implement logic into money. For commercial banks and other institutions, the opportunity to apply this programmability to create innovative new products that differentiate themselves from challengers and competitors is almost endless. We encourage every bank and financial institution to read the Project Rosalind report and start planning their smart money infrastructure strategy.”

Project Rosalind And CBDCs

Project Rosalind, led by the London Centre, was designed to tackle crucial issues within the retail CBDCs’ development. These issues include improving public-private sector collaboration, maximizing interoperability, and meeting the constantly changing needs of citizens. The project seeks to improve public-private sector collaboration by creating prototype APIs that enable a central bank to interact safely with private sector service providers. Through extensive collaborations, Project Rosalind has demonstrated that APIs can play a crucial role in enhancing CBDCs’ payment functionalities and security.

By leveraging distributed ledger technologies like blockchain, Quant can also fulfill its vision of being a decentralized network of networks, bringing greater reliability and security to various industries.
