Swiss Stock Exchange wants to enable direct trading in cryptocurrencies
SIX launches fully integrated end-to-end trading, settlement and custody of digital assets.
The Swiss Exchange, operated by SIX, is the world’s first fully integrated infrastructure for the trading, settlement and custody of digital assets. As a provider of financial market infrastructure, SIX is subject to supervision by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) and the Swiss National Bank. In order to sustainably establish the new digital ecosystem, standards are sought that are comparable to today’s regulations.
Jos Dijsselhof, CEO of SIX, comments: “A new era is dawning for the financial market infrastructure. It is clear to us that digitization is progressing and that it will shape the future of our industry. ”
The creation of SIX Digital Exchange creates the world’s first platform for the issuance, trading, settlement and custody of digital assets. In addition, the new services will enable the tokenization of existing securities as well as the integration of non-financial assets, so-called non-bankable assets.
