Cryptocurrency

In August 2018, Boerse Stuttgart announced that it was developing the infrastructure for the creation and trading of initial coin offerings that it would register as a multilateral trading facility.[2] The announcement said this initiative will also provide custody services.[3]

The exchange announced a tie-up with solarisBank on December 12, 2018. SolarisBank will be the bank for the cryptocurrency platform that Boerse Stuttgart says will launch in the first half of 2019. These will be available to investors in the European Union.[4]

Crypto ETPs

On April 2, 2019, Boerse Stuttgart announced that they had launched four exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which are a form of exchange-traded product or ETP, tied to the prices of two different cryptocurrencies - specifically, XRP and Litecoin. These products were designed to give investors familiarity with trading digital assets without actually having to purchase them. They were released through XBT Provider, a Stockholm-based firm that has launched a number of investment products tied to digital assets since 2015.[5]


On May 9, 2019, Boerse Stuttgart listed exchange-traded notes, again based on XRP and Litecoin (LTC).[6]

Bison

Boerse Stuttgart announced on April 12, 2018 that its subsidiary, Sowa Labs, was in the process of developing an application for cryptocurrency trading called Bison, which will support trading in bitcoin, Ether, XRP and Litecoin.[7] In addition to these and other features, the platform provides an information service that scans Twitter for news about cryptocurrencies.[8]

In January 2019, Boerse Stuttgart launched Bison for German residents only. In doing so, it became the first fully-regulated stock exchange to offer cryptocurrency trading services. Alexander Höptner, the company's CEO and former IT chief, led the creation of the platform, which will rely on two foreign cryptocurrency exchanges - the U.S. exchange Kraken and the U.K. exchange Bitstamp. The app is currently available only to German residents, but the company plans to launch support for non-German residents in the future.[9][10]
