The planned implementation of a blockchain-based system at the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) may be pushed by up to two years. This is after some of the market participants voiced their concerns, claiming that the integration of the system would have far-reaching effects on the market.
The implementation of the blockchain system had been planned for April 2020. However, as CoinGeek reported, the coronavirus pandemic forced the bourse to postpone its integration plans. Now, this integration could be pushed back for up to two years if some of the market players have their way.
