Issuers will be able to make use of this service to issue EUR denominated bonds under Swiss law, opening up new possibilities for market participants in the digital asset space.
SDX members trading in bonds issued and settled in EUR can now also benefit from atomic trading and settlement via SDX-CSD, the first regulated CSD based on DLT. Members of SDX-CSD will be able to initiate a tokenization and de-tokenization of tEUR (tokenized EUR) through a connection to euroSIC. The process is similar to existing processes for tCHF.
David Newns, Head SDX, noted “With this step, SDX once again underscores its pioneer status in the digital asset space. We are harnessing distributed ledger technology for future service offerings which are now attractive and applicable to the EUR market. These are truly exciting times!”
