The R3 consortium brings together the largest financial institutions and regulators who want to use blockchain in their daily practices. The main product of the organization is the Corda blockchain platform, the first official version of which was released in October last year..
By joining R3, Alfa-Bank expects to contribute to the development of blockchain solutions in the Russian banking industry, as well as “provide customers with more convenient and affordable product solutions.”.

Recall that earlier Alfa-Bank, M.Video and Sberbank formed their own blockchain consortium. The last of them joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance in October last year.
