DBS Bank has joined the Hedera Governing Council, the group of diverse organisations responsible for stewarding the Hedera network which is a sustainable, enterprise-grade public network for the decentralised economy.

As the first and only bank in Southeast Asia to join the Governing Council, DBS will explore further opportunities and potential use cases to leverage the vast potential of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies.

DBS has been actively leveraging blockchain to offer solutions in areas including cross-border payments and settlements as well as trade financing.

With asset digitalisation and tokenisation fast gaining traction, DBS also launched its blockchain-backed digital asset ecosystem last year.

Anchored by the DBS Digital Exchange, DBS is able to offer corporate clients and accredited investors an integrated suite of solutions across the digital asset value chain.
