MOSCOW, Nov 23 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs Sberbank has organized redemption of 750 million rubles worth of commercial bonds under blockchain-based smart contracts of mobile operator MTS, the countryТs biggest bank said on Friday in a statement.

УIТm sure that our joint blockchain project with the National Settlement Depository and MTS is only the beginning and within five to ten years, products and services with blockchain, including smart contracts on its basis, will be an ordinary thing.Ф
