Despite the initial coin offering boom (ICO), Nasdaq is still the best place to attract capital. This opinion was expressed in an interview with CNBC by the vice chairman of the US stock exchange Bruce Aust.
We are a regulated market, I think that's the difference between us and an ICO. And we'll see at some point those markets become regulated and that will change everything.
It's very young and early stage and Nasdaq has always been at the forefront of helping companies raise capital, whether it be in the Nasdaq private market or through the Nasdaq public markets. So we believe that we are the market for companies to raise capital.
