Deutsche Börse AG said Jan. 23 that it had developed a new concept for the risk-free transfer of commercial bank money based on distributed ledger, or blockchain, technology.
The concept could be used for credit risk-free cash transfers and the value transfer of assets, according to Eric Müller, CEO of Eurex Clearing AG, Deutsche Börse's clearing house. Since Eurex Clearing is connected to Deutsche Börse's central securities depository Clearstream, it could also offer efficiency gains in post-trade processes such as settlement and asset servicing.
It could also reduce the inherent risk in tokenized coins.
Deutsche Börse has filed for patent on a prototype modeled on Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Fabric and will consult clients, regulator and central banks to receive feedback on the prototype.
