By Jemima Kelly LONDON (Reuters) - Swiss bank UBS is leading a team of four of the world's biggest banks developing a system to enable financial markets to make payments and settle transactions quickly using blockchain technology. UBS has developed a "Utility Settlement Coin" (USC), which is a digital cash equivalent of each of the major currencies backed by central banks, such as the dollar or euro, rather than a decentralized new digital currency such as bitcoin. The USC would be convertible at parity with a bank deposit in the corresponding currency, making it fully backed by cash assets at a central bank.
