The step taken by DDEx opened other issuers and clients to the possibilities that the exchange is able to provide. It is about effective access to capital markets in order to meet the financial needs of its participants.
At the same time, the company is preparing to increase the number of emissions STO and your quotes as soon as possible tokenization assets will become even more common. Many experts see the issue Security Token Offering a great opportunity for companies looking for platforms such as DDEx to raise funds from promising private equity markets in Asia and the Pacific - a region that accounts for nearly a third of the private equity market. Last year, it reached a record value of USD 4,73 trillion.
STO in Asian markets
As Eng-Kwok Seat Moey, head of the capital markets group at DBS, argues, the first listing of STO on DDEx turned out to be extremely significant as it allowed to determine the strength and importance of the company's digital asset ecosystems in improving new methods of freeing value for issuers and investors. This strengthens the ability to deliver integrated solutions along the digital asset value chain, thereby fostering more STOs run on DDEx. Eng-Kwok also emphasizes that asset tokenization will become even more common as more and more clients start using the STO issue to raise equity funds. This, in turn, will motivate Singapore to fight for a leadership position in digital assets in Asia.
It should be emphasized that the digital DBS bond is fully compliant with the applicable legal regulations. Investors can therefore count on exactly the same level of security as in the case of traditional bonds. Of great importance for this state of affairs is the intensive development of Singapore's legal and tax infrastructure, which is conducive to more STO emissions. To attract investors, digital bonds will be sold in lots of SGD 10, which is significantly lower than traditional bonds. As a result, DDEx is able to offer tokenized assets with smaller denominations, thus increasing liquidity and removing barriers for investors.
