DBS (D05), Singapore's largest bank by market cap, said it has become the first Asian bank to use JPMorgan's (JPM) blockchain-based fixed income trading network Onyx, joining international heavyweights including Goldman Sachs (GS) and BNP Paribas (EPA).

The Onyx Digital Assets network uses tokens for short-term trading in fixed income markets, enabling investors to lend assets for a period of hours without them leaving their balance sheets.
