The digital assets landscape is growing rapidly in both scale and variety. As the first regulated digital securities exchange, Six Digital Exchange is at the heart of this developing market. Michele Curtoni, head of strategy at SDX, joins Lewis McLellan, editor of OMFIF’s DMI, to discuss the benefits that a new digital architecture for financial securities is starting to bring. Curtoni goes into detail on the benefits of distributed ledger technology in improving the settlement of different asset classes and the disruption that it enables. He also discusses how to solve what he calls the ‘cold start problem’ — the problem of how to simultaneously introduce digital assets, liquidity, and a dedicated digital market infrastructure.
