Local governments earlier announced that digital vouchers, which can be used like cash within a certain area, will be rolled out in the coming years.

Under the deal, KT is expected to set up the blockchain platform and network infrastructure whilst Shinhan develops the related financial services such as payment and account systems within the blockchain.

"Shinhan's strategic partnership with KT is a part of our efforts to introduce a convergence between finance and ICT," Shinhan Bank digital strategy department head Jang Hyeon-ki told TKT.
