New Delhi/IBNS: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has informed that Blockchain Technology (BCT) is one of many promising technologies and its usefulness will depend on how it is adopted and adapted to a wide array of uses, the Ministry of Finance said on Tuesday.

In a written reply to Parliament, Minister of State for Finance Dr Bhagwat Kisanrao Karad said RBI has informed that BCT has been listed as one of the innovative technologies, leveraging on which innovators can apply to test their products in RBI’s sandbox environment.

RBI has stated that their Regulatory Sandbox has not identified any specific areas as such for the use of BCT for Indian banks.

However, under the Cross Border Payments theme of the Regulatory Sandbox of RBI, participating entities have tested certain blockchain-based applications.
