First blockchain structured note offered

March 19, 2018

London-based Marex Solutions created what it says is the first structured product to be registered, cleared and settled using blockchain, the distributed ledger technology underpinning Bitcoin.

Marex declined to say how much was sold to retail investors in the private placement on Friday. Read the original story from Bloomberg.
