Nyse operator announces the global digital assets platform
Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), the operator of 23 leading global exchanges including the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), has announced plans to create a Microsoft cloud-powered “open and regulated, global ecosystem for digital assets,” according to a press release published August 3.
The operator of NYSE is forming a new company, dubbed “Bakkt,” and will work alongside a marquee group of enterprises that includes BCG, Microsoft, Starbucks, and others, to create the new ecosystem.
The intention is to create an integrated platform that enables retail and and institutional clients to buy, sell, store, and spend digital assets on a “seamless global network,” the press release notes.
These regulated venues will establish new protocols for managing the specific security and settlement requirements of digital currencies.
Cointelegraph will update this story as more details are forthcoming.
