Burgos, Aldenio Vilaca, Oliveira Filho, Jose Deodoro, Suares Marcus Vinicius Cursino, Almeida Rafael Sarres. Distributed ledger technical research in Central Bank of Brazil.
Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is a novel technology that powers trusted distributed databases. This paper presents a research of an IT department team of Central Bank of Brazil on the matter, the experience in analyzing potential use cases, and the examination of some of the available platforms to develop working prototypes of a minimal Real Time Gross Settlement System. This work also describes perceived privacy issues related to the technology acquired during the implementation effort, and presents a naive approach to tackle these issues.
