Bo Collins, former president of the New York Mercantile Exchange which is now owned by the CME Group, Inc., announced the establishment of the San Juan Mercantile Exchange and its affiliate the San Juan Mercantile Bank & Trust. Together, the entities are to provide institutions trading, settlement and custody services for their cryptocurrency holdings.[1]
