According to the bank, the exchange, dubbed DBS Digital Exchange, will start operating next week.
The platform, which is 10% owned by Singapore’s SGX stock exchange, will offer a wide range of services, including conversion of securities and other assets, bank-grade custody of digital assets as well as spot exchanges from fiat currencies to cryptocurrencies and vice versa.
