VICTORIA, Seychelles, April 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — KuCoin Research, a prominent analytical arm of the global leading cryptocurrency exchange, has released its April edition of the Monthly Research Report, providing a comprehensive overview of the dynamic trends and significant developments within the cryptocurrency market during March 2024.

In March 2024, the cryptocurrency market experienced significant events that underscored the dynamic interplay between technology and financial trends. Bitcoin soared to new heights, reflecting a surge in market optimism. The Ethereum network saw significant progress with the implementation of the Dencun upgrade, which resulted in a 13.66% increase in the Total Value Locked (TVL) within its Layer2 solutions, as measured in ETH. This development, along with a marked upswing in crypto investment and financing—highlighted by 180 projects attracting a combined financing of $1.16 billion—underscored a robust resurgence in the primary investment market.

The period also witnessed the burgeoning growth of the AI and Real World Assets (RWA) sectors, with notable advancements despite some volatility. AI’s deepening integration with various industries, coupled with the vibrant activity within the Solana ecosystem, and significant shifts in stablecoin dynamics—with USDT, USDC, and the rising prominence of USDe—further illustrated the evolving landscape of digital assets.

DTCC partners with Chainlink and JPMorgan to pilot blockchain integration for fund data

dtcc-partners-with-chainlink-and-jpmorgan-to-pilot-blockchain-integration-for-fund-data

As headlines spotlight spot Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF) flows and institutions revealing their exposure to BTC ETFs, financial service infrastructure providers are quietly integrating blockchain technology into their systems.

According to a recent report from the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), the firm conducted a pilot program named Smart NAV in collaboration with Chainlink (LINK). This initiative aimed to extend the capabilities of DTCC’s Mutual Fund Profile Service I (MFPS I), the industry standard for transmitting ‘Price and Rate’ data, also known as ‘NAV data.’

DTCC’s Mutual Fund Services business currently operates MFPS I, offering fund companies an automated solution to deliver prices and daily distribution rates to numerous clients for tens of thousands of mutual fund securities. Traditionally, DTCC collects price and rate data from funds/service providers and distributors, then aggregates and disseminates it at regular intervals through its message queue (MQ) and file-based methods.

The Smart NAV Pilot served as a digital extension of the existing MFPS I service, aiming to broaden and complement its current capabilities. DTCC recognized the growing interest in mutual fund tokenization and saw an opportunity for on-chain price and rate data to facilitate new initiatives. Taking a ‘chain-agnostic’ approach, meaning the ability to disseminate NAV data across virtually any blockchain, was crucial for enabling other use cases to build upon Smart NAV’s foundations.

Ten market participants, including major names like American Century Investments, BNY Mellon, and JP Morgan, collaborated with DTCC and Chainlink on the pilot. They evaluated the feasibility and industry value of implementing a distributed ledger technology (DLT)-based price and rate dissemination solution to unlock new benefits and support experimentation in the asset management space.

The pilot results demonstrated that delivering structured data on-chain and establishing standard roles and processes enabled foundational data to be integrated into various on-chain use cases, such as tokenized funds and bulk consumer smart contracts. This capability can fuel future industry exploration and empower numerous downstream use cases, including brokerage portfolio applications.

The simplest application of Smart NAV is to provide trusted, verifiable data on virtually any blockchain network to support its use in business workflows. During the pilot, DTCC acted as both the provider and governor of the on-chain data solution, while Chainlink’s CCIP served as the interoperability layer. The core capability explored is adaptable across a wide range of use cases, potentially enhancing operational efficiency and streamlining processes.

Based on the positive findings, DTCC sees an opportunity to expand the scope of the pilot to explore broader use cases beyond price and rate data dissemination and across more blockchains.
