Bakkt continues to gather global support for a busy launch



On 3 August this year, the company that owns the New York Stock Exchange – Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) – announced that it was forming a new company known as Bakkt. This latest venture would be a new company to push Bitcoin and other digital assets into traditional financial assets. The new venture should be launched later this November of this year.

Other companies included in Bakkt would be other "heavyweights" of Wallstreet like Microsoft, Starbucks, BCG, an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group, Eagle Seven, Galaxy Digital, Horizons Ventures, Alan Howard, Pantera Capital, Protocol Ventures, Susquehanna International Group, LLP and more.

A Twitter follower with the name of @abcTRDR said this to say of Bakkt :

How ICANN helped bring the mainstream of Internet, @ Bakkt will help realize the potential of digital assets in the financial sectors by providing a fair regulatory framework that enables efficient price discovery and a powerful infrastructure for financial services.

A Busy Launch Ahead [19659004] Bakkt's managing director, Kelly Loeffler, has since written a medium post, thanking the global community for the positive response from the announcement and the continuous conversation throughout world.

In the statement, he stated the following: [19659007] I wanted to share a couple of quick observations of the last two weeks. First of all, the response to our news around the world has been very strong. The credit goes largely to a group of prominent partners and to the vision of Bakkt we have been collaborating for months. Equally important is the widespread need we are hearing for a reliable infrastructure for trading, archiving and spending on digital currencies.

He would then finish the post in a high pitch waiting for an intense autumn / fall:

It is exciting to do this job as the end of a busy summer approaches and an even busier fall awaits. Thanks for your interest and feedback.
