Will Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) be the technology post-trade providers will have to focus on, and how will the needed infrastructure(s) look like?
Crypto-assets seem to be on a trajectory to establish themselves as a new asset class. Do global custodians and financial market infrastructures have to deal with the underlying technology? How could the future ecosystem for handling crypto assets on a distributed ledger system look like? Should the established infrastructure providers in today’s post-trade area (CSDs, Global Custodians etc.) be involved in this new market or is it a hype that will go away?
