Sui Network to Host First National Exchange

Renowned Greek stock trading firm Athens Exchange (ATHEX) plans to utilize Sui to build the next iteration of its Electronic Book Building (EBB) service. Upon collaborating, one of their activities would be to evaluate the technical capability of upgrading the EBB service to a distributed ledger technology platform on Sui.

The EBB is a new fundraising feature on ATHEX that allows early-stage and mature companies to list transferable securities. It functions centrally as a meta-layer over ATHEX’s existing trading order routing system, providing liquidity for business proposals of companies seeking funds.

Customers who leverage EBB are eligible to benefit from the numerous perks that come with the platform. This includes the determination of the best offer price for transferable securities such as stocks and bonds, increased transfer efficiency, and more. The Sui Network architecture, especially its focus on speed, security, and a developer-friendly experience will play a crucial role in revolutionizing ATHEX’s EBB.

Mysten Labs’ Solution Engineering team, recognized for offering support to partners globally, will extend goodwill to ATHEX’s technologists. CEO of the stock exchange Yianos Kontopoulos, noted that Sui has the right team to help ATHEX harness the full potential of blockchain technology. 

TradFi Embracing Blockchain Technology

The partnership between Sui Network and Athens Exchange is also a clear example of traditional finance firms embracing Web3.0 and blockchain. 

In recent months, the crypto industry has seen this trend even with the adoption of spot Bitcoin ETFs by institutional investors. Top firms like BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale and Valkyrie filed applications to offer their clients direct exposure to BTC through a product known as Spot Bitcoin ETF.

After a long wait, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved their filings back in January. Since the offering was greenlighted, the number of institutional investors that have delved into crypto has increased significantly, indicating a massive interest. However, the increased adoption is triggered by the excellent result that the spot Bitcoin ETF market has recorded in such a short time.

For Sui, the news of its alliance with ATHEX is likely to cause a boost for SUI considering ATHEX’s reputation in its jurisdiction which might drive more adoption and demand of the coin. 

At this time, there is no sign of a bull movement as SUI is trading at $1.43 with a 5.50% decrease in the last 24 hours.
