The experimentation has officially started and is currently in the solution design phase from a functional, legal and technological point of view. Between July and October 2020, at the end of the development phase, the blockchain platform will be tested by uploading and managing real and legally valid sureties.

When fully operational, the platform will provide guarantors and beneficiaries with greater efficiency, transparency and information certainty throughout the entire surety management process, with the primary objective of reducing potential frauds.

The project is being developed within a "Sandbox", i.e. an environment for experimentation on real data under the supervision of a scientific committee composed of the Bank of Italy, IVASS, Guardia di Finanza, CeTIF, SIA, Reply and other participants in the initiative.
