Most of you probably heard several months ago that NASDAQ planned to test Bitcoin technology within its business. It now appears the exchange will be rolling it out live in the fourth quarter, partnering with Chain.

From Bloomberg:

Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. expects to become the first major exchange operator to use the technology behind bitcoin when a project in its private-companies business goes live in the fourth quarter.

The stock market operator is partnering with infrastructure provider Chain to use blockchain to issue and transfer the shares of privately held companies. Blockchain is the ledger that drives the bitcoin digital currency.

The technology will be “of fundamental importance to Wall Street,” Nasdaq Chief Executive Officer Bob Greifeld said during a phone interview Thursday. “The benefits to the industry are immense and cannot be ignored.”

Meanwhile, it appears that the BTC chart may have finally turned the corner.
