Société Générale will continue to test the issuance of blockchain bonds to external investors

According to foreign media today, six months ago, Societe Generale used blockchain technology to issue more than $100 million in bonds, but the transaction was completed internally and did not involve external customers. Jean-Marc Stenger, CEO of Industrial Bank's subsidiary Forge Digital Capital Markets, said that the purpose of issuing the bond was not to resell the assets, but to test the purpose. Stenger further said: "At present, Industrial Bank is waiting to see whether blockchain technology is a real future, or just a temporary trend. The next step in the trial is to finally issue a blockchain bond to external investors."
