Reporting in London on Wednesday, at a significant event of the sphere, Jeffrey Tessler (the firm's chief of customers, products and core markets), declared: "We are deep at work with it." Nevertheless, any move into the crypto space from the stock exchange might not be forthcoming fast. When CME Group and Cboe Global Markets both started bitcoin futures trading last December, Tessler further claimed during the event that Deutsche Boerse is "not at the same stage." According to his point of view, the company is attempting to understand the volatility of the bitcoin market first and insuring clients and regulators are "in line" before stepping ahead with any offerings.

Whilst a move into offering bitcoin products is not definite, the exchange has already been active in the blockchain field. Deutsche Boerse unvealed details to CoinDesk about its plan to move the majority of its post-trade services to a blockchain last June. It affirmed at the time that it was interested in building a system, using Hyperledger's open-source Fabric protocol, in order to transfer securities and move commercial bank money, while still undertaking cross-jurisdictional compliance with regulators.

Also, as recently as March, the group declared it wish to deploy a platform for more operative securities lending using R3's Corda blockchain tech.
