Those parties that are involved in the securitization process can reap the above-mentioned benefits only when there is a standardized framework for a multitude of different distrusted ledger platforms.

Particularly, standardization could ensure better data availability and eliminate the need for mandatory reconciliation processes. On top of that, it will allow seamlessly conducting internal and external audits.
