NYSE Operator to Launch Global Digital Asset Platform, Germany's 2nd Largest Stock Exchange to Launch ICO Platform and Crypto Trading Venue, South Korea's FFS Calls for Blockchain in Stock Trading and Coinbase Announces Support for GBP

Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE:ICE), which owns and operates the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), has announced the creation of a new company called Bakkt, a "global platform and ecosystem for digital assets". Bakkt will work with companies such as Microsoft (NasdaqGS:MSFT), BCG and Starbucks (NasdaqGS:SBUX) to facilitate their platform that allows users to buy, sell, store and spend digital assets on a "seamless global network". The press release indicates that first use cases include trading Bitcoin (BTC) against fiat currencies. Jeffrey C. Sprecher, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of ICE outlined the Bakkt's aim of bringing a robust and regulated infrastructure to digital asset trading.
"In bringing regulated, connected infrastructure together with institutional and consumer applications for digital assets, we aim to build confidence in the asset class on a global scale, consistent with our track record of bringing transparency and trust to previously unregulated markets."
Boerse Stuttgart, Germany's second-largest stock market, is establishing an ICO platform and a "multilateral and regulated trading venue for cryptocurrencies", according to Finextra. Boerse Stuttgart CEO Alexander Höptner explained the complementary nature of the two platforms.
"At the trading venue tokens issued via our ICO platform can be traded on the secondary market. This is an important success factor for ICOs. At the same time we are responding to demand from both retail and institutional investors for a regulated and reliable environment for trading with cryptocurrencies."
South Korea's financial watchdog, the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS), released a report calling on the country's regulators to create an integrated blockchain system for stock trading, according to an article from Korea JoongAng Daily. The article, written by Park Eun-Jee, summarized the FSS report thusly:
"Blockchain technology promises to offer safer and tamper-proof transactions when compared to existing transaction systems. Conventional systems require a centralized ledger to track transactions, but such systems are slow and are vulnerable to hacks.
A blockchain-based system, on the other hand, can keep a shared digital ledger of transaction data on a network of computers to ensure security and preserve transaction records more accurately while processing transactions more quickly."
Crypto exchange giant Coinbase recently announced in a blog post that it will begin support for British pounds (GBP). Previously, users in the UK would have to convert their fiat into euros to perform a transaction.
