Three major banks in Ireland are using blockchain to verify staff credentials in a drive for security and compliance.

The Bank of Ireland, AIB and Ulster Bank are using Deloitte’s blockchain solution for a pilot initiative, is has been revealed. The solution, which uses Ethereum and was built by Deloitte’s Blockchain Lab in Dublin, verifies and tracks staff credentials and qualifications data.
