The Athens Exchange Group (ATHEX) is evaluating the deployment of its Electronic Book Building (EBB) feature onto the Sui blockchain. 

This initiative marks the first time blockchain technology has been integrated with traditional stock exchange mechanisms. Through a strategic partnership with Mysten Labs, the progenitors of Sui, the Greek ATHEX aims to disrupt the way stock exchanges operate worldwide.

ATHEX to Deploy Fund-Raising Tool on SUI

The EBB, a cornerstone of ATHEX’s fundraising arsenal, facilitates listing transferable securities for new and established companies. This functionality, layered at ATHEX’s existing trade order routing system, ensures liquidity for companies needing funding. 

These securities would be minted as digital certificates by transitioning to the Sui network. Therefore, boasting unparalleled security, transferability, and a transparent custody chain.

Sui’s network presents ATHEX with the robust performance necessary to cater to its clientele’s needs. Moreover, the decentralized nature of Sui, akin to the broader internet, provides resilience to outages. This redundancy is crucial, ensuring investors on the ATHEX platform remain unaffected by potential system failures.

However, amidst this announcement, the SUI token has seen a downtrend, slipping below $1.45. According to the Super Trend indicator, this shift to a bearish outlook puts the spotlight on the $1.60 resistance level. Failure to breach this threshold could see SUI revisiting lower levels, possibly down to $1.17.
