Understanding The Significance Of Singapore’s MAS And SGX Applying Blockchain for Settlement Of Tokenized Assets
MAS And The Singapore Exchange, SGX, Have Implemented The Blockchain Technology For The Successful Settlement of the Tokenized Asset
It is evident that the blockchain technology, which is the current underlying technology that has backed the successful Bitcoin, is gradually growing across the globe.
As a result, several exchanges have gone ahead to leverage on this new technology it is the likes of MAS, Monetary Authority of Singapore, and SGX, which is the Singapore Exchange. The primary goal behind these institutions is to ensure they have been able to provide easy trading to take place between different blockchain platforms.
With this in place, there should be easy trade taking place between the tokenized asset across the different blockchains in the market.
Just A Brief On the Report That Was Presented
– The SGX and the MAS have been able to successfully develop the DvP that will be used for the tokenized assets.
– The DvP has been able to create one of the major technology partners, this is the likes of Nasdaq, Anquan and not forgetting Deloitte.
– There was a joint report that was published on the settlement of the DvP, which was then published by SGX together with MAS with a smart contract.
According to the report that was presented, both SGX and MAS will be facilitating the DvP, Delivery vs. Payment, which will be used in the cross settlement of digital security. At the same time securities will be sold and even bought through the smart contracts over the different platforms that have been created on the blockchain technology.
But this is not all; it will also allow corporate investors and Fintech that will aid in the successfully trade exchange and settlements. With this process being put in place it should be able to reduce the current settlement risk that exists while still being able to increase the operational efficiency.
