Boston, December 15, 2016 – Important developments are taking place in the realm of blockchain. The Australian Securities Exchange and Nasdaq are blockchain converts ready to evangelize others, while Overstock.com and its t0 platform recently set distributed-ledger precedents. Following in their footsteps, dozens of distributed-ledger-technology capital-markets deployments will be ready to move in 2017. What can these three firms tell us about the types of DLT projects waltzing into the securities settlement realm and what they hope to displace?
This Impact Report offers an in-depth look at the blockchain deployments in the post-trade space initiated by Australian exchange ASX, Nasdaq, and Overstock.com. This report is based on qualitative Aite Group interviews over the June 2016 to November 2016 period with the three firms profiled and from interviews with 26 senior executives sharing their views of DLT in a securities settlement function.
