Key outcomes: tokenisation and smart contracts of residential mortgage backed securities.
Australian Mortgage Marketplace (AMM) is a retail neo-lender based in Sydney. AMM engaged Block8 to design and build a greenfield DLT system to hold residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) within a trusted network of investors, trustees and the regulator to ensure a consistent view of ownership.
Initially significant business process modelling was conducted to understand the multiparty workflow and re-engineer the process using smart contracts. The new product, “Carbon,” orchestrates workflow between parties for the offer and sale of RMBS, payment of disbursements, and ongoing trust fund management.
The system is designed to run on R3’s Corda.

“Block8 has bought the technical aspects of our vision to life, and we are now building the world’s first mortgage securitisation blockchain – which is an evolutionary leap in securitisation.”
