According to the patent, the tech would help the company to keep an ongoing record of these transactions, verifying that a vendor was actually paid after a particular sale.

As the filing states,

“There is a need for a technical solution where a payment transaction can be guaranteed in a manner that is readily verifiable by an acquiring financial institution and/or merchant, and where the guarantee can be used in conjunction with multiple types of payment instruments as well as multiple transaction types, including e-commerce transactions.”

Mastercard has always considered blockchain platforms as a reliable source to ease payments. Recently, the company announced that is opening up access to the blockchain tools it was developing in order to facilitate business-to-business transactions.

Blockchain has completely controlled the execution of the false transaction. It has become an automated system to update records and verify transactions. Bitcoin works on blockchain system, that’s why it’s really hard to hack Bitcoin network.

Mastercard has also shown a keen interest in developing e-payment solutions in Pakistan. Earlier this year, the global credit card giant also signed a contract with NADRA to upgrade ID cards with e-payment facility.
