In hopes to grow its financial products on the DBS Digital Exchange (DDex), Singapore’s DBS Bank just announced its issuance of a $11.3 million digital bond in its security token offering (STO).
A security token offering is similar to that of an IPO, in that it’s a type of public offering where tokenized digital securities are sold on security token exchanges like DDex. In turn, these tokens can be used to trade equities, fixed income, and more.
The DBS Digital Bond, which is issued via DDEx, comes with a six-month expiry and a coupon rate of 0.60% per annum. DBS stated that this will allow other STO issuers and private clients to tap into DBS’ growing infrastructure to “efficiently access capital markets” for funding.
Eng-Kwok Seat Moey, head of capital markets at DBS, said that his firm’s issuance of security tokens present an opportunity for corporations to seek alternative ways of fundraising from private capital markets.
“Our maiden STO listing on the DBS Digital Exchange is a significant milestone, as it highlights the strength of our digital asset ecosystem in facilitating new ways of unlocking value for issuers and investors.”
The bank expects tokenization to become more mainstream as it continues to expand its digital asset services. Considering that STOs on DDEx offer the same legal protection as the bank’s traditional offering such as securities, it’s certainly possible that more Asia-Pacific companies will embrace issuances as a valid method of raising capital.
“We expect asset tokenization to increasingly become more mainstream as more of our clients start to embrace security token issuance as part of their capital fund raising exercise which we believe will boost Singapore’s ambitions to be a digital asset hub in Asia.”
Since DDEx’ launch in December of last year, DBS reported that the its daily cryptocurrency trading volumes have increased by over 1000%, with $60 million worth of digital assets in custody. Amid growing retail and institutional interest in cryptocurrencies, the bank also launched a crypto trust offering for its private wealth management arm earlier this month.

Ethernity Chain (ERN) Goes Live On Binance’s Innovation Zone
[PRESS RELEASE – George Town, Cayman Islands, 22nd June 2021]
Ethernity Chain (ERN) is coming to Binance’s Innovation Zone and will receive three trading pairs later today. The popular community-oriented platform with a strong focus on authenticated and limited edition NFTs has received a lot of attention lately. This token listing further enhances the appeal of what Eternity Chain brings to the table.
As a platform renowned for its limited-edition authenticated Non-Fungible Tokens, Ethernity Chain has built up a strong reputation in the past few months. Numerous famous individuals, celebrities, and sports athletes have partnered with the team to create new collectibles on the platform. Recently, Ethernity Chain teamed up with Manny Pacquiao, footballer Pelé, Phil Ivey, Anderson Silva, Marilyn Monroe, and the Winklevoss brothers further illustrating the appeal NFTs have at this time.
The native ERN token has multiple purposes within the Ethernity Chain ecosystem. For example, it can be used to buy NFTs, stake the token for rewards, governance rights through voting on proposals, and is subject to period buybacks by the team through platform profits. Getting this token listed on a major trading platform like Binance can introduce thousands of people to ERN and the broader Ethernity Chain ecosystem.
“When the biggest exchange in the world decides to incorporate your company into theirs, it’s definitely not something to take lightly. This is a massive statement that reverberates to all our artists, charities, icons and of course, the community” – Nick Rose, CEO Ethernity Chain
Binance has confirmed ERN will become part of its Innovation Zone. The Innovation Zone serves as a dedicated trading zone where innovative assets with potentially higher volatility are introduced to Binance’s traders. With this higher trading risk comes a potentially higher reward.
Interested users must go through the Innovation Zone’s web page and complete a questionnaire to access ERN and other listed tokens. There are no trading restrictions on these trading pairs. For Ethernity Chain, the trading pairs will be ERN/BNB, ERN/BUSD, and ERN/USDT. Trading will commence today at 06:00 AM UTC.

ADA fell beneath the 100-day MA at $1.42 over the weekend and has since plummetted as low as $1 today.

It continued today as ADA broke support at $1.12 (long-term .618 Fib) and dropped into $1 (short-term .886 Fib).
ADA-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the bears break $1.07, the first major support lies at $1.00 (200-day MA). This is followed by support at $0.913 (May lows), $0.847 (downside 1.272 Fib Extension), $0.8, and $0.75 (.786 Fib).

The daily RSI reached extremely oversold conditions today, indicating that the sellers must be reaching exhaustion soon. The RSI is now the most oversold since September 2020.

Unfortunately, it was unable to close above the 50-day MA at 4000 SAT and dropped lower from there yesterday as it fell beneath 3820 SAT (.382 Fib). Today, it continued until added support was found at 3440 SAT (.5 Fib).

‘Bitcoin’s six-week run of outflows has been driven’ by these factors
The Bitcoin market was witnessing strong sell-offs for over a month now. On Monday, the largest digital asset plunged to its monthly lows of $31k, triggered by the ongoing crackdown by China. This has spread panic among investors.
Over the past week, Bitcoin outflows totaled a massive sum of $89 million, while the bitcoin outflows value hit $487 million for the year. This was 1.6% of assets under management as indicated by the data offered by CoinShares.
The above chart indicated that the top cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum were both noting a higher selling pressure in the current market.
This was the third consecutive week of outflows for the entire crypto market and it amounted to $79 million leaving the market. Researchers have termed this as ‘the longest bear run in outflows since February 2018’. Currently, for June, the net outflows remained high at $210.5 million with another week left of the month.
According to Matt Weller, global head of market research at Forex.com:
“Bitcoin’s six-week run of outflows has been driven by the combination of environmental concerns and an increasingly antagonistic regulatory environment in China. With these themes still in effect and prices subdued, it may be a while before we start to see another period of sustained fund inflows.”
Following China’s crackdown, authorities in one of the largest Bitcoin mining provinces, Sichuan ordered the closing of the cryptocurrency mining projects. Owing to such negative sentiments in the market, BTC value has remained low at $32k, at the press time.
Data from Alternative.me also suggested ‘Extreme Fear’ in the market and its value has fallen to 10, suggesting more fear than greed.
Bitcoin has now lost almost 50% of its value since the peak observed in April.
Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency was also seeing minor outflows of $1.9 million last week. In the previous week, it reported a total outflow of $14.6 million, which was restricted compared to Bitcoin’s outflows. Ether outflows represented only 0.14% of assets under management, suggesting the negative sentiment had remained focused on Bitcoin.
