Russo: ‘A Social Network for the Global Capital Markets’
GLX — or Global Listing Exchange — is a social network for the global capital markets which aims to use blockchain to democratize access to financial market data.
“The GLX token is the utility and the payment protocol on the network,” says Russo. “It’s an ERC20 Ethereum blockchain token, and it’s absolutely necessary to really fuel the network. We couldn’t do it with cash.”

Growth of the North American Bitcoin Conference
The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) is regarded as the original major Bitcoin event in the USA, and possibly the world. Held annually in Miami every January since 2013, it staked that city’s claim as Bitcoin’s fun and business capital — growing from a few hundred bitcoin enthusiasts into a gathering of thousands, including several high-profile industry leaders. It’s a must-attend event on the blockchain calendar.
Produced by Dr. Moe Levin’s Keynote Events team, it now covers all disruptive blockchain technology issues — including smart contracts, ICOs, fintech, regulation and investment. TNABC also has international sister events, such as World Blockchain Forum in London.
