I cannot believe there is still discussion over "bitcoin vs blockchain" are they seperable or interdependant. Here is the final analogy to put this debate to rest once and for all!

My analogy is as follows.
Blockchain = tcp/ip (base structure of the internet).
Bitcoins = domain names.
Pretend its 1992.
1) IF the Internet (tcp/ip) becomes the global platform used for media and communication then http:// domain names are inherently connected with tcp/ip and therefore are basically the same thing (interdependant).
2) IF a decentralised global competitor to the internet takes over and becomes ubiquitous then that protocols domain name system will become valuable and interdependant with the prevailing "internet" protocol.
3) IF a mesh of private closed 'intranets' become the chosen way to do digital communication then no domain system will be relevant or valuable as there wouldnt be a globally connected internet to register them on.
In the exact same way but with bitcoin.
1) IF Bitcoin becomes the global platform used for Blockchain applications then "bitcoins" are inherently connected with the bitcoin blockchain and therefore are basically the same thing (interdependant).
2) IF a decentralised global competitor to bitcoin takes over and becomes ubiquitous then that protocols native token will become valuable and interdependant with the prevailing global blockchain protocol.
3) IF a mesh of private closed blockchains become the chosen way to do digital value transfer then no crypto currency will be relevant or valuable as there wouldnt be a globally connected blockchain in use.
If the bitcoin blockchain becomes the globally chosen platform of trust and value transfer, then bitcoins will be interdependant as you require bitcoins to access and write to the bitcoin blockchain.
If society chooses a different global blockchain platform OR chooses to use a mesh of private closed blockchains then bitcoin will be removed from blockchain usage by virtue of simply not using the bitcoin blockchain.
Bitcoin and "bitcoins blockchain" are inseparable but depending on how this space evolves and what societly chooses as its preferred blockchain usage method, will determine wether bitcoins will be used or not.

Bitcoin Futures in NASDAQ

Nasdaq has been at the forefront of distributed ledger technology adoption since it launched its blockchain-powered private share market, Linq, in 2015.

Since then, the New York-based stock exchange operator has continuously been part of Wall Street’s push toward blockchain and digital asset integration.
In the first half of 2019, Nasdaq is reportedly planning to launch bitcoin futures trading on its exchange platform.

Here’s what the Bitcoin Market Journal team knows so far about Nasdaq’s planned bitcoin futures offering and why this is a big deal.
  1. What Are Bitcoin Futures?
  2. Nasdaq Bitcoin Futures
  3. Why Nasdaq Bitcoin Futures Matter
  4. Where to trade Bitcoin futures now?

What Are Bitcoin Futures?

Bitcoin futures are financial derivatives that enable investors to either buy or sell bitcoin without actually touching the digital currency itself.
More specifically, Bitcoin futures contracts oblige the investor to buy or sell bitcoin at a predetermined price on a predefined future date.
They are standardized, detail the quantity of the underlying asset, and trade on exchanges.
Bitcoin futures can, therefore, be used to make directional bets on the price of bitcoin or to hedge a digital asset portfolio by shorting bitcoin using bitcoin futures contracts.
Regulated Bitcoin futures were approved in late 2017 by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), after which both the CME and the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) launched bitcoin futures trading.
This was a monumental milestone for bitcoin as it gave the digital asset class a major regulatory stamp of approval for the first time in its history.


Nasdaq Bitcoin Futures

At the Consensus: Invest conference in New York, Van Eck’s director of digital asset strategy, Gabor Gurbacs, confirmed that Nasdaq will launch “a regulated crypto 2.0 futures-type contract,” during a panel discussion in November 2018.
According to Gurbacs, Nasdaq “ran a few extra miles working with the CFTC to bring about new standards for custody and surveillance,” which is why they have been taking longer to launch their bitcoin futures offering than their Chicago-based peers.
Nasdaq is yet to release any information on what its bitcoin futures will look like as well as officially confirm the launch of bitcoin futures trading on its platform.

Why Nasdaq Bitcoin Futures Matter

After the CME and CBOE, Nasdaq could become the third major U.S. exchange to launch bitcoin futures trading.
This matters for bitcoin investors because the more reputable exchanges are launching digital currency-related financial products, the more institutional investors are likely to invest their funds in bitcoin and other digital currencies in the future.
Many bitcoin experts agree that once the institutional investor floodgates open, the prices of bitcoin and other digital assets are poised to rally and potentially even reach new highs.
To date, bitcoin investments have been primarily driven by early adopters, high-network individuals, and a small number of crypto hedge funds. Institutional investors, such as mutual funds, pension funds, and insurance companies, however, have much deeper pockets than the existing bitcoin investor base.
Hence, their entrance could potentially push bitcoin to never-before-seen highs.
Interestingly, Nasdaq is not the only exchange with bitcoin futures in the pipeline. ICE-backed Bakkt plans to roll out its bitcoin derivatives trading offering in 2019 and asset management giant Fidelity is also looking to join the bitcoin trading foray this year.
In addition to launching bitcoin futures, Nasdaq is also considering adding digital currency spot trading to its exchange platform once this new digital asset class matures.
“Certainly Nasdaq would consider becoming a crypto exchange over time. If we do look at it and say ‘it’s time, people are ready for a more regulated market,’ for something that provides a fair experience for investors,” Nasdaq CEO Adena Friedman said on CNBC’s Squawk Box last year.
Moreover, in February, Nasdaq announced the addition of two new digital asset indices, covering bitcoin and Ethereum, to its Global Index Data ServicesSM (GIDS), highlighting its commitment to digital assets.

Where to trade Bitcoin futures now?

JEX Exchange would be a good choice.

Nasdaq used a bitcoin-style blockchain to sell shares. Was it really the first?

Nasdaq has trumpeted a recent share transaction as the first-ever private securities issuance documented with a blockchain, the technology that underpins crypto-currencies like bitcoin. The exchange announced on Dec. 30 that it used its blockchain-powered platform, Linq, to allow a startup called Chain to sell shares to an unnamed private technology investor in the US. But the Linq transaction looks like a bit of PR-posturing from the exchange. For starters, it probably isn’t the first time a company’s share transactions were recorded on a blockchain. As the Financial Times pointed out, Symbiont, a startup backed by former New York Stock Exchange chief executive Duncan Niederauer, issued its own shares on the bitcoin blockchain on Aug. 4. In September, Digital Asset Holdings, led by former JPMorgan bigwig Blythe Masters, also used blockchain tech to enable a startup called Pivit to distribute shares to investors. Nasdaq is unfazed by these precedents. “This is the first-ever private securities issuance documented with blockchain technology and we stand by this view,” Nasdaq spokesman Ryan Wells told Quartz. Blockchains promise to cut out a lot of the administrative costs and paperwork that’s currently required when private companies want to distribute shares. That’s because a blockchain is a shared ledger that all the parties in a transaction maintain, which cuts out the need for manual work, like mailing paper-share certificates and updating individual ledgers. That’s why so many firms are experimenting with the technology’s potential to sharply reduce securities settlement times. But there’s a bit more bluster to cut through in Nasdaq’s claim. Chain, the company that sold its shares, is also the technology vendor that helped build the Linq platform. This isn’t mentioned in Nasdaq’s latest release, although it was announced in June. “Chain is a blockchain developer and worked hand-in-hand with Nasdaq as we created the technology,” Wells said. Nasdaq’s blockchain transaction, then, is starting to look more like a technology vendor testing its product and less like a milestone on the road to a financial technology revolution.

Nasdaq to simplify proxy voting process for shareholders, with blockchain technology

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 64%.
In his keynote speech at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Greifeld unveiled that Nasdaq will test blockchain technology to "Better manage and streamline the proxy voting process," starting with a Nasdaq market in Estonia.
Voting is the primary way shareholders can influence a company's operations, its corporate governance, share structure, or mergers and acquisitions.
These are all matters that shareholders, the true owners of the company, will vote on.
Proxy voting allows shareholders to vote when they can't attend a shareholder meeting, by assigning an agent to act on their behalf.
On October 27, Nasdaq delivered on a promise made in May, announcing its first blockchain-enabled platform, Nasdaq Linq, which will be demonstrated at the Money20/20 event this week, in Las Vegas.
While all these efforts have been directed at Nasdaq private markets, in an interview with Bloomberg, Greifeld recently stated that Nasdaq is not discounting any possibilities, but is testing options within the private market, citing that "we can control the whole vertical stack.
