The Chinese financial firm Ant Financial, which is part of the Alibaba Group, has released the blockchain service DoubleChain Connection. It is designed for supply chain participants and allows the use of business transaction data to obtain financial services.
Within the framework of the project, a solution for blockchain integration into the supply chain was developed. The new service will allow supply chain participants, mainly small and medium-sized enterprises, to facilitate access to Ant Financial services. In particular, with the help of financial statements on the blockchain, firms will be able to receive loans for relevant business operations.
