Intercontinental Exchange and Cryptocurrency
In August 2018, ICE officially announced that it had begun founding a new company called Bakkt. The goal of the company, according to the announcement, would be to help the burgeoning cryptocurrency asset class mature, as well as assist in bringing traditional financial institutions and other large enterprises into the cryptocurrency space, theoretically smoothing out the wild swings in its price that cause its volatility. The company is partnered with the Boston Consulting Group, Starbucks, and Microsoft.
