The World Bank board has reported, in the course of blockchain-based bond issuance they have beaten the target by $8 million thus having received around $81 million.
The World Bank used to announce its one-of-a-kind project earlier, namely, issuing the first bonds on distributed ledger to the amount of $73 million. The project was named “bond-i”. Australia-based company Commbank is issuance facilitator and one of the largest investors in this project along with QВЕ Insurance, SАFА, Northern Trust, etc.
