Blockchain has become part of the Fintech development to disrupt finances, increase technology adoption and eventually provide the alternative solution for banking industry. Hyperledger, permissioned blockchain platform uses smart contracts to function as normal application without any intermediaries. The smart contract was extended to include the financial sector such as the bank. Various tasks related to blockchain technology in bank to enhance data security and regular interactions between customers had been implemented. A Multon Dapp for the Hyperledger Fabric has been proposed in financial sector using the Hyperledger Composer tool. Tools use are the Oracle Virtual Box, Sublime Text, Angular, GitHub, command line interface, Hyperledger Composer, Apache JMeter, and Tableau. Security and scalability in the application have been well evaluated. Results show that security is protected by the unique identity for Hyperledger Composer while the transaction in the application is secured by the transaction id and timestamp. Not only that, different experiments are conducted successfully in JMeter to compare the average response time with the different number of users. Finally, all the codes are executed in the design product is finalised in the GitHub repository.
