Hans Kuhn, Boardmember of SEBA Bank, states: “With the DLT law coming into force today, Switzerland reaffirms itself as one of the most progressive and innovative legal and regulatory jurisdictions around the world that now fully supports the issuance of digital securities on a native blockchain basis. This marks a major step forward in enabling and securing the innovation expected of security token issuance.”

Guido Bühler, CEO of SEBA Bank, adds: “SEBA Bank’s strategic position providing a secure bridge between the traditional and the digital banking worlds now includes a fully integrated, banking grade asset tokenization capability that puts SEBA Bank at the forefront of digital security issuance under one roof.
