Blockchain technology can bring significant improvements. It guarantees the transparency and traceability of contracting, with both ACS and BBVA being able to independently consult at any time the state of the contractual process and the conditions due to the traceability afforded by the technology. The system also digitizes the negotiating process leading to a shortening in the management time from days to hours.
