So far crypto-currency has maintained a "cult-like" following and isn't really taken seriously. Warren Buffet has not faith in it, but then again he didn't even buy a computer until a few years ago. Folks on Twitter have been pretty excited about the prospect:
"Certainly Nasdaq would consider becoming a crypto exchange over time," Nasdaq CEO Adena Friedman told CNBC's Squawk Box Wednesday. "If we do look at it and say 'it's time, people are ready for a more regulated market,' for something that provides a fair experience for investors."
What does this mean for financial services? It depends on your business model, one thing's for sure everybody needs to understand blockchain and cryptocurrency moving forward.
