The selected variant will be rigorously evaluated to ensure its regulatory compliance, technical viability, scalability, functionality, and alignment with the objectives of enhancing efficiency and resilience.

This will lay the foundation for a secure and transparent digital assets ecosystem.

Throughout the project phase, the participating banks banks including BCV, Credit Suisse, Entris Banking, Hypothekarbank Lenzburg, InCore Bank, Julius Baer, PostFinance, Sygnum, UBS, Vontobel, VZ Depotbank and Zürcher Kantonalbank, will collaborate closely with regulatory authorities, industry stakeholders, and technology experts.
