Deutsche Boerse and Crypto Technology

Shortly after the launch of the bitcoin futures contract on Cboe a spokesman for Deutsche Boerse confirmed that it was looking into the possibility of launching its own futures contract.[1]

In March 2018 Deutsche Boerse announced a partnership with HQLAx, a London-based financial technology firm, to deploy R3's blockchain Corda technology for a new securities lending platform. The Eurex division of Deutsche Boerse was to contribute a trading platform.[2]

Bloomberg reported on May 23, 2018 that the acting Deutsche Boerse CEO, Jeffrey Tessler, had told attendees at a conference that Deutsche Boerse was "deep at work" on bitcoin.[3]

On August 28, 2018 Deutsche Boerse disclosed that it had expanded its relationship and made an investment in HQLAx for a minority stake of the company.[4]

In an interview published on the Deutsche Boerse website on August 30, 2018, Jens Hachmeister, the head of the new "DLT, Crypto Assets and New Market Structures" unit, said that "the DLT/blockchain technology is a key opportunity for the creation of new market structures, adding new products onto our present structures and enhancing our existing offerings." Taking a company-wide approach, the unit is staffed by 24 employees including Hachmeister.[5]
