"Nasdaq's announcement goes to show investors that we are on the right track," said John Matthews, the Company's CEO. "Nasdaq's Linq exchange is the latest instance of blockchain technology being used to make processes faster, cheaper, and more secure and that's a good thing because any time there is a major technology breakthrough like Blockchain, there will always be first movers and fence sitters.
