November 16, 2021

Multi-chain infrastructure operator GATENet, a GSX Group initiative, teams up with STT, a fintech company specialising in financial market software. On the 9th of November the companies signed a joint business contract to integrate STT’s Automated Trading System and related software to GATENet’s blockchain software.

Through this contract, the two companies plan to actively advance into the Digital securities space and revolutionise the current legacy trading model by utilising blockchain technology.

GATENet has designed its proprietary Digital FMI to provide end-to-end digital securities lifecycle infrastructure from issuance, listing, trading to settlement, for securities, fiat and digital assets, to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for all issuers, investors and market participants everywhere.

STT will integrate GATENet’s Digital FMI with its core products to enhance its features and provide a unique offering to all financial market participants.

“We are very proud to be partnering with GATENet to provide a core element of their Digital FMI through our combined technology. Blockchain technology provides numerous benefits to the traditional legacy trading and settlement model and we are excited to begin this journey with the GATENet and GSX teams.” says Zack Hodgson, Managing Director of STT Mauritius.

Nick Cowan, CEO of GSX Group says: “We are very excited to be working with STT on delivering our GATENet Digital FMI vision. In STT we have a partner that delivers world-leading exchange infrastructure and has the capabilities and functionality to support us in developing and delivering a total solution incorporating blockchain technology to transform the way digital assets trade and settle. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the STT team.”
