Hello @NASDAQ! At last, I can participate in one of these things, thanks for joining us! Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Netflix, Tesla -- the biggest tech companies in the world are listed on NASDAQ. What do you do to attract these technology stocks, and how do you look at some of the biggest private tech companies today that one day may want to go public? (like good friend Slack, Uber, Airbnb, Snapchat)

Nasdaq@nasdaq · The Nasdaq Stock Market #IgniteAmbition
@producthunt Nasdaq itself is a technology company, we disrupted the exchanged space in 1971. Our brand represents what many of these companies stand for which is growth and innovation.

@nasdaq @producthunt you could disrupt even more by following the guiding principles of bitcoin. Traders on bitcoin teamspeak, ts.whalepool.io, are there all the time and we see Nasdaq and other legacy markets as basically old white males in the boardroom before women and blacks were allowed.

Hiiiiii @NASDAQ! 😀 Thank you for joining us. I love what you guys do on social -- game recognizes game -- can you tell us a little more about how you approach the different social platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat (and Vine! nice work there) and which one you're focusing on most currently?
Nasdaq
Nasdaq@nasdaq · The Nasdaq Stock Market #IgniteAmbition
@nivo0o0 Thanks so much Niv, we love social media and are on every channel imaginable. Our current obsession is Facebook Live. It's the best way to show behind the scenes here at Nasdaq and gives our Nasdaq Companies a new platform to communicate directly with our fanbase. Also, check out our Snapchat today. We had superstar Snapchatter GiniCanBreathe take over our channel for the SecureWorks IPO.

What do you think will be the next biggest change in the fintech industry (after machine learning), and how will NASDAQ fit into or become a leader in this vision?
Nasdaq
Nasdaq@nasdaq · The Nasdaq Stock Market #IgniteAmbition
@refinedtradesx We are always on the forefront of technology and one of our biggest focuses for this year is Blockchain technology for Financial Services. We already have 2 pilots underway: Nasdaq Linq and Blockchain-Enabled Proxy Voting in Estonia.

This might be a tough question to answer so you don't have to answer it! But I feel like someone has to ask. 😁 What is your view of high frequency trading in terms of being good or bad for financial markets?

Hi Nasdaq! Thanks for joining us today! What's a common misconnection people have about you?
Nasdaq
Nasdaq@nasdaq · The Nasdaq Stock Market #IgniteAmbition
@ems_hodge That we are only technology companies, but in fact that's only 23% of our listed companies. We list companies like American Airlines, Starbucks, Marriott and Celgene.

What are the biggest challenges private tech companies are facing in 2016 in terms of preparing for an IPO?
Nasdaq
Nasdaq@nasdaq · The Nasdaq Stock Market #IgniteAmbition
@tomstocklein Hi Thomas, some of the biggest challenges for private companies before they IPO, include getting their accounting, regulatory and investor relations in order. We always advise that private companies starting acting like a public company 12+ months in advance of a listing.

What is your long-term vision for Nasdaq Linq?
Nasdaq
Nasdaq@nasdaq · The Nasdaq Stock Market #IgniteAmbition
@tomstocklein Blockchain technology has the potential to assist in expediting trade clearing and settlement from the current equity market standards of three days to as little as ten minutes. As a result, settlement risk exposure can be reduced by over 99 percent, dramatically lowering capital costs and systemic risk. In addition, this technology could allow issuers to significantly lower the risk and the administrative burden of what is largely a manual and multi-step process today.
