Banking majors Citi and Credit Agricole have acquired minority stakes in the London-based blockchain platform SETL.

Furthermore, Computershare have increased their investment in the company, while its group CEO Stuart Irving has joined SETL board.

With the new investment, Citi and Credit Agricole join the company’s existing shareholders which include Computershare, S2iEM and Deloitte.

Launched in July 2015, SETL works to implement a multi-asset, multi-currency institutional payment and settlements infrastructure based on blockchain technology.

The SETL system allows the participants to move cash and assets directly with each other facilitating the final settlement of market transactions.

The system maintains the record of ownership and other associated transactions to simplify the process of matching, settlement, registration, custody and transaction reporting.
