Institutionalizing Crypto

Bakkt and the race to win Wall Street

Recorded at CoinDesk’s Consensus:Invest Conference, Bakkt’s CEO Kelly Loeffler and ICE’s Chairman and CEO Jeff Sprecher’s chat with the MIT Media Lab’s Michael Casey. Bakkt plans to roll out the world’s first 1-day physically delivered Bitcoin contract in 2019, allowing institutions and consumers alike to seamlessly buy, sell, store, and spend the digital asset. While Bitcoin’s value may rise and fall, the profound appeal of crypto is not so much as an investment to buy and hold, but rather a currency to actually put to work.
