Nasdaq がブロックチェーンを活用する最初の取引所になる


Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. expects to become the first major exchange operator to use the technology behind bitcoin when a project in its private-companies business goes live in the fourth quarter.

The stock market operator is partnering with infrastructure provider Chain to use blockchain to issue and transfer the shares of privately held companies. Blockchain is the ledger that drives the bitcoin digital currency.

Nasdaq は、ビットコインを支えているブロックチェーンの技術を使い、未公開株式を売買できる市場を公開する予定です。2015年内と、伝えられています。

ブロックチェーン関連の技術に関しては、Chain との提携がすでに進んえいます。

Advocates for the software say it will dramatically speed up and simplify how trading of everything from stocks to loans and derivatives is processed. Wall Street professionals endorsed blockchain in a recent Greenwich Associates survey, with 94 percent saying it could be used in finance.
