Project Helvetia and Project Rio

Summary:
Project Helvetia, undertaken with the Swiss National Bank (SNB) and the financial infrastructure operator SIX, demonstrates the functional feasibility and legal robustness of settling tokenised assets with a wholesale CBDC (proof of concept 1) and through linking a digital ledger technology platform to existing payment systems (proof of concept 2) in a near-live setup. Rio is a prototype of a central bank-specific, real-time capable market monitoring platform. The cloud-based stream processing platform will process real-time financial data feeds and compute relevant liquidity and market risk measures.
