The financial technology subsidiary of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, Ant Financial, started testing its enterprise blockchain platform. According to local news outlet Sina Finance on Nov. 12th, the senior director of technology and business innovation at Ant Financial, Jieli Li, announced the development at the World Blockchain Summit at Wuzhen.
The firm's plans to launch its own blockchain platform were first reported in September last year. During the event, Li said that the platform - dubbed Ant Blockchain Open Alliance - will go live three months after the testing period. While the platform's name includes the word "Open," Li explained that not everyone will be able to run the network's nodes.
"As for the selection of node operators, we are more cautious. Because to form a credible value network, not only do they need to be a consensus accounting node, but they also need to provide authoritative endorsements." In September, Ant Financial also partnered with pharmaceutical giant Bayer Crop Science, Monsanto's owner, to develop a blockchain solution for the food and crop industry.
