Israel’s Stock Exchange Says It Is Launching a Blockchain Platform for Securities Lending

CORRECTION (July 28, 13:35 UTC): An earlier version of this article misstated the timing of the platform launch. TASE said it expects to go live Nov. 2; it has not done so yet. The earlier version also misplaced Tel Aviv, which is in central Israel, not the north.

The Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) has said it is launching a new blockchain platform that it claims will become the “one-stop-shop” for lending securities in the country.
