Three Trailblazing Blockchain Deployments Are Underway in the Post-Trade Space

Boston, December 26, 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.

“These fast-moving cases of distributed ledger technology in securities settlement inform us how to evaluate several such deployments that will arrive in 2017 and 2018,” says Aite Group senior analyst Javier Paz.


Aite Group’s latest report, ASX, Nasdaq, Overstock, and the Charting of Distinct Blockchain Roadmaps, 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 June to November 2016 with the three firms profiled and from interviews with 26 senior executives sharing their views of DLT in a securities settlement function.
