Atomic matching & settlement on a public blockchain infrastructure

Our DLT market infrastructure will be the first of its kind - leveraging peer-to-peer settlement of financial instruments natively on the blockchain.

Fast & seamless

Our central-limit orderbook applies atomic matching and settlement between E-Money (EUR) and asset tokens

Smart contract-based

Both cash and securities settlement is Smart Contract based. Any whitelisted wallet can trade in real-time using our central limit order book.


Our multi-blockchain approach will allow us to admit any regulatory compliant token to trading independant from blockchain and token standards

White-label frontend

Through our partnership with 21finance we will offer white-labelled digital asset platforms that will be seamlessly integrated with 21X's trading functionality

End-to-End processes

We live process excellence by applying a high level of test automation, regular penetration tests and relying on audited Smart Contracts

API functionality

Market participants and financial institutions will be able to trade on 21X by integrating our REST API in their own digital asset front-end solution


Intermediaries foster complexity

In traditional stock exchanges, a vast amount of intermediaries is involved between a retail or institutional investor and the exchange. Intermediaries like custodians, CSDs, transfer agents or clearing houses are needed to route transactions between buyers and sellers in a regulated and compliant way. This process is slow, complex and costly.


Disintermediation is finally possible

Under the EU DLT Pilot Regime it is possible for 21X to enable peer-to-peer trading between buyers and sellers without the need for further intermediaries. Both retail and institutional investors will be able to trade directly on 21X after running through our onboarding process to be compliant.
