The first piece of news to come from ‘Blockchain Week’ via Consensus 2018 was a Twitter announcement from the head developer at Litecoin via this tweet:
This is huge news for Litecoin. Huge news for Gemini. And huge news for secondary partners connected to Gemini such at NASDAQ, CME, etc.
Think of the products that will follow this announcement. Fulfilling block trades from global investment banks will shift that volume away from the Binance type of exchanges and into the hands of Gemini and its partners. Litecoin futures at the CME. Litecoin futures or direct USD pricing at NASDAQ.
A massive, massive deal.
