Switzerland Stock Exchange Prepares Digital Assets Trading Market

The body in charge of running the Stock Exchange in Switzerland have released plans to start a trading platform offering integrated end-to-end trading, settlement and custody services for digital assets such as virtual currencies and ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings).

The controlled exchange will host all fundamental elements to virtual trading all in the same place, so that bonds, equities and other financial assets can be digitised and committed to a particular digital token in order to store their value and allow faster and more efficient transactions between trading partners.
