According to a report from Accenture, in near future, the financial institutes will explore blockchain technology in a bigger way. To make this process easier, IBM, The Linux Foundation, and other tech giants have partnered with big banks to announce an open source project called the “Open Ledger Project” which would inadvently simplify bitcoin transactions for banks interested in moving ahead on the blockchain track (a backbone technology that makes bitcoin work).

The new open source project will address the missing features and important requirements needed for a universal standard.
The new open source collaboration includes companies like IBM, Cisco, Digital Asset, Fujitsu, IC3, ANZ Bank, CLS, Credits, Intel, Accenture, London Stock Exchange Group, State Street, SWIFT, VMware, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, and Wells Fargo.
It’ll be developed as a development library that will allow businesses to make custom solutions without any dependency on public blockchains like Ethereum and bitcoin.
Contributing to this project, IBM will provide “thousands of lines of existing code” from its research. “A broad, cross-industry and open source approach is critical to advance the potential for blockchain and make it mainstream,” said Arvind Krishna, Senior Vice President and Director, IBM Research.

Recently, a report from Accenture suggested that in near future, financial services will explore the blockchain, online security, and cloud technology more. Along the similar lines, this open source collaboration is expected to make blockchain adoption faster and easier by creating a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers.
