The Athens Stock Exchange (ATHEX) is pioneering the integration of blockchain technology into its Electronic Book Building (EBB) system in collaboration with the Sui blockchain ecosystem.

This initiative aims to enhance security, efficiency, and transparency for users by digitising securities as certificates on the blockchain.

By merging securities allocation and settlement processes into a streamlined confirmation, transactions are expected to become faster and more efficient for all stakeholders.

The move towards blockchain adoption underscores a broader trend in traditional finance (TradFi), with other global exchanges also exploring Web3 technologies to modernise operations and foster innovation.
