DBS, Singapore’s largest retail and commercial bank, announced its first-quarter financial results following the launch of its institutional cryptocurrency exchange in late 2020.

DBS Bank, Singapore’s largest retail and commercial bank, has announced its first-quarter financial results following the launch of its institutional cryptocurrency exchange in December 2020.

DBS chief financial officer Chng Sok Hui said that the bank saw record performance as quarterly net profit surpassed $2 billion for the first time in history, doubling from the previous quarter.

DBS’ newly launched crypto platform, DBS Digital Exchange, apparently played a significant role in the bank’s latest milestone, as the platform saw a tenfold increase in daily trading volumes, reaching $30 million to $40 million, DBS CEO Piyush Gupta said.

Gupta also mentioned the company’s collaboration with United States investment bank JPMorgan Chase and Singapore state investment firm Temasek to create a new blockchain venture focused on global interbank transactions.
