Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) is a global provider of trading, clearing, exchange technology, listing, information and public company services. Nasdaq is the creator of the world's first electronic stock market, and its technology powers more than 90 marketplaces in 50 countries, and 1-in-10 of the world's securities transactions. It is home to more than 3,900 listed companies with a market value of approximately $12 trillion and approximately 18,000 corporate clients.[1]

Nasdaq's current CEO, Adena Friedman, has said that she is "optimistic" about the future of cryptocurrency and blockchain/distributed ledger technology. She also said that the technology feels like the "right next step in the space of currency."[2] She also said in April 2018 that Nasdaq is open to launching a cryptocurrency exchange in the future, once the market "matures."[3][4]

The following June, Friedman said that cryptocurrencies are at "the height of hype," and that they will become a "financial element of the Internet."[5][6]

In late July, Nasdaq hosted a secret meeting in Chicago, Illinois. The meeting included representatives from traditional exchanges as well as cryptocurrency exchanges, including Gemini. The group discussed a number of issues with the current crypto trading space cenered around the need for adequate market surveillance, as well as the implications of future crypto market regulation.[7][8]
