One of the largest global stock exchanges, Nasdaq plans to launch its own platform for ICO tokens. ChapiCap reports this with the reference to its sources. Now stock market experts are engaged in the creation of such a platform using the blockchain technology.
The site will serve for the release of the so-called investment tokens during the ICO of various projects and the subsequent trade in them. Sources clarify that the Nasdaq team maintains a close relationship with the blockchain-startup Symbiont, which is developing solutions for launching cryptocurrency platforms.
For the first time, the Nasdaq team announced its readiness to adopt the blockchain in 2015. Then the stock exchange wanted to use distributed registry technology to develop a platform on which companies could place their securities.
Nasdaq shows interest to cryptocurrencies since the last year, when information was received that the company could provide a platform for trading digital assets for the first time. It became known about the intention of its leadership to launch its own crypto-exchange.
