About

Hi we’re Nasdaq Blockchain!


Nasdaq have been active in the blockchain space as early as September 2015, when they joined a $30 million investment round in Chain, a blockchain startup that eventually partnered with Nasdaq to launch Linq, a blockchain-powered platform for issuing private equities. In May 2017 Nasdaq and Citi announced an integrated payment solution using a distributed ledger to record and transmit payment instructions based on Chains blockchain technology. The technology overcomes challenges of liquidity in private securities by streamlining payment transactions between multiple parties.

In January 23, 2019 Nasdaq made its largest investment in enterprise blockchain, leading a $20 million Series B in Symbiont, a startup working to bring new kinds of assets that are custodied by blockchain to mainstream adoption. As quoted by Gary Offner, Head of Nasdaq Ventures “Our investment will also include the integration of Symbiont’s enterprise blockchain and smart contract platform into the Nasdaq Financial Framework.”
