The president and CEO of Nasdaq, Adena Friedman, says that cryptocurrency “deserves an opportunity to find a sustainable future in our economy,” This, she said in a Jan 20th post on Linkedin. Friedman stated that Nasdaq believes crypto will have a role in the future, characterizing “the invention itself [as] a tremendous demonstration of genius and creativity.”Thus far, she argued, crypto has evolved through what she terms a “classic invention lifecycle” The CEO argued that for crypto to evolve into a practical, useable invention with a stable value, it requires “governance and regulatory clarity.” Bakkt is in the news again, this time boasting their first acquisition. Kelly Loeffler, the CEO of Bakkt announced in a recent Medium post, their intentions to purchase the Rosenthal Collins Group, an independent futures commission merchant. Loeffler states that the mission of Bakkt is to build the first integrated, institutional grade, exchange-traded markets, for physical delivery of digital assets. Their vision is to bring digital assets into the mainstream by enabling efficient transactions between consumers and merchants. Loeffler exclaims, this acquisition underlines the fact we’re not standing still as we await regulatory approval by the CFTC for the launch of trading in our crypto markets. Amazon Web Services recently announced the preview of what they call Quantum Ledger Database. QLDB is a centrally administered, immutable data ledger, within AWS. QLDB is optimal for use cases when there is a trusted authority recognized by all participants and centralization is not an issue. Blockchains are optimal when there is no trusted authority and centralization is indeed an issue. QLDB does not benefit from decentralization and independent copies of the ledger that come with permissioned blockchain technology – features that further promote data security and integrity. The Autonio team is proud to announce that Stanley Larimer has joined Autonio’s advisory board. Stan will be working closely with the Autonio team to advise on the development of the NIOdex, Autonio, or Automated Nexus of Intelligent Operations, makes cryptocurrency trading readily accessible to users of any skill level.
