Swiss SIX creates Blockchain exchange

Switzerland is increasingly becoming the most important blockchain hotspot in Central Europe - after numerous other projects, the Swiss stock exchange "SIX" now also relies on blockchain technology. The intention is to create its own blockchain-based and secure trading platform. The "SIX Digital Exchange" should start with the first services in mid-2019, as the stock market announced on Friday. The Swiss Stock Exchange says that it wants to create the first fully integrated trading-infrastructure for trade, settlement and safekeeping of digital assets. For the time being the banks could decide whether they want to use the traditional electronic- or the new digital trading platform. It’s possible that the SIX Digital Exchange will replace the existing system in the future.

Other major exchange platforms are also working on blockchain solutions. For example last December the Australian ASX Group announced that it would replace the existing settlement system “Chess” with a blockchain-based system.
