Bakkt is a new digital asset platform announced by ICE, the parent company of NYSE. It’s goals are to create the infrastructure necessary for institutional investors to enter the Bitcoin ecosystem and also for retail consumers to use Bitcoin in everyday purchases. They have 2 big name partners – Starbucks and Microsoft. Their roadmap includes a physically settled futures market as well as creating the tools necessary for consumers and merchants to use Bitcoin seamlessly. Hopefully this will be the first step to mainstream adoption of Bitcoin (BTC).
