The partnership would enable banks to easily access and deploy Infosys’ blockchain solutions on Corda, R3’s open-source blockchain platform, said a statement by the infotech firm.
 
Infosys will initially have two solutions available on the Corda platform – Finacle Trade Connect and Finacle Payments Connect.
