Credit score should help grow local ratings agencies and provide a great deal of employment to finance graduates. In fact, business schools will flourish if ratings agencies become active in our markets, generally. Improved trading platforms will help increase the volume and even quality of financial transactions, which could result in increased wealth for traders. People with a high net-worth should feel incentivized to invest in Pakistan instead of foreign countries. They have these convenient financial services and advisors, who simply need an approval from the investors to get the returns they need. Those who do prefer to invest in Pakistan, prefer real estate and that has destroyed our cities’ master plans all over the country.

For financial markets, blockchain-based smart contracts for stock options is a good choice. But this can lead to market manipulation and even crash the market because if institutional investors or those with a great deal of financial clout in the markets decide to go short, it’ll bring down the entire market with them. There’s a 5% cap in the PSX after which the market shuts down automatically. This, too can be based on the same underlying technology as smart contracts. And for futures contracts, preferably for commodities, a similar smart contract-based mechanism could be used. Out of all the financial technology introduced in recent times, outside of digital banking and ATMs, smart contracts, in theory, seem to be the most revolutionary or at least, provide the most convenience. Blockchain for land registry can dramatically reduce corruption in Pakistan, where real estate is basically nothing short of manipulating urban maps of cities by land-grabbing or encroachment. It’s the worst.
