On December 7, 2017, the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) announced that it will use distributed ledger technology to record shareholdings and manage the clearing and settlement of equity transactions in Australia.

Masters hailed the news as a "precedent-setting event", and added that is is the first time that distributed ledger technology has been given a validation by a "major systemically important market infrastructure" whose standards from an enterprise point of view, she said, are as "exacting as they can be".

ASX managing director and CEO, Dominic Stevens, said it had been carefully examining DLT for nearly two-and-a-half years to understand its potential. Digital Asset Holdings LLC, the blockchain startup run by former JPMorgan Chase & Co. banker Blythe Masters, will supply the technology.

ASX partnered with DA two years ago, building toward today's announcement as part of two and a half years of experimenting with and testing blockchain platforms. The system, which was developed by Digital Asset (DA), will replace the Clearing House Electronic Subregister System (CHESS).
