NASDAQ Chief: Crypto is the right next step in the space of currency

posted 4 months ago
Nasdaq chief executive Adena Friedman spoke about cryptocurrency on the latest episode of CNN podcast Boss Files, Friedman said that cryptocurrency feels like the “right next step in the space of currency” because a “globalized payment mechanism” is a natural fit for the cross-border digital economy.

She said:

“How it evolves and which of the cryptocurrencies may or may not be the one that ultimately gets embraced, I think that really the jury is still out on that. But I do think the idea of a more globalized payment mechanism that is more efficient than what we have today allows for money to transfer across countries and certainly supports the Internet economy.”
