Deutsche Börse Foresees DLT Role as Network Operator

The exchange says its function may evolve from a traditional market infrastructure provider to managing decentralized networks.


Deutsche Börse’s distributed ledger-based collateral swaps initiative with start-up HQLAx could be the first step toward a new role as a network operator, says Simon Seiter, head of digital assets at the exchange. 

“For us, it was the first step to deliver real value to the market through a new operating model with HQLAx and to explore where our role in a decentralized world could be in the future,” Seiter says. “This role might be [as] a financial market network operator.”
