Bakkt News

Bakkt is an open, seamless global network that enables the buying, selling, storing, and spending of digital assets simply, safely and efficiently. Backed by Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), the owners of the New York Stock Exchange, and in partnership with big hitters like Microsoft and Starbucks, Bakkt’s secure global platform will connect investors, merchants and consumers, making it easier, faster and more cost-effective to access, trade and use digital assets. Bakkt also offers physically backed Bitcoin futures, meaning that institutions will actually hold the Bitcoin they place contracts for. Starbucks’ involvement could see Bitcoin transactions being enabled in their stores in 2019.
