For more than five years Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) – the technology of cryptocurrencies – has been shaking up the financial industry. It threatens the traditional financial business models and decreases intermediations of traditional financial institutions. At the same time it is raises the risk of fraud and money laundering. However, DLT integrates the full value chain of listing, trading, clearing, settlement and Central Securities Depository services. This significantly reduces systemic risk in financial markets: instant settlement, increased transparency and lower transaction costs. Simultaneously it broadens the asset and investor universe. Additionally, new business models will emerge.
