Some of the anticipated services to be offered through the new partnership between SBI and SIX includes listing, trading, CSD infrastructure, digital assets issuing, and crypto custodian services.
SIX Digital Exchange (SDX) and SBI Digital Asset Holdings Co Ltd have today announced a joint venture meant to steer forward the institutional crypto adoption in the region. According to the press release, the joint venture will focus on both regulated digital assets securities and cryptocurrency assets. Apparently, through the partnership, both entities will bring onboard their services and technologies to oversee a successful venture. With both companies having demonstrated a notable influence in the institutional crypto industry, their partnership is anticipated to onboard further clients in different markets.
Some of the anticipated services to be offered through the new partnership between SBI and SIX includes listing, trading, CSD infrastructure, digital assets issuing, and crypto custodian services. However, it is expected to take up to two years for things to fully keep rolling. The Singapore operations are expected to kickstart by 2021, while the plans to roll out active offerings are set for 2022.
After the new joint venture is completely rolled out, the two entities promise their investors a significant investment reduced barrier. This is primarily because they intend to use the distributed ledger technology to enhance the speed of on boarding thus reducing the associated operational risks.
Notably, through the introduction of Digital Market Infrastructure (DMI), the middle-layer processes can be significantly reduced. As a result, the institutional investors using the venture platform have better services. Particularly, the use of DMI will allow a condensed process and faster transfer of data
