纳斯达克在爱沙尼亚推出区块链投票系统

近日,纳斯达克在一份官方声明中表示,纳斯达克的区块链技术产品Linq已完全有能力完成并记录私人股票发行。可以说Linq是历史上第一个使用区块链技术的产品。开发区块链技术的创业公司Chain在一份证明文件中记录了私人投资者可使用纳斯达克的区块链技术来进行股票交易。Linq的正式投入使用尚不足两个月,而纳斯达克还在欧洲正对另一款区块链技术相关产品进行试点项目,这一切都表明纳斯达克希望将区块链技术从实验室中解放出来,并运用到现实世界。

纳斯达克和爱沙尼亚共和国同时发表声明称,纳斯达克将在爱沙尼亚的e-Residency平台使用区块链电子投票服务系统。在纳斯达克的塔林证券交易所挂牌上市的公司股东可以利用此平台在股东大会上进行投票。塔林证券交易所是爱沙尼亚唯一一家官方认证的证券市场。爱沙尼亚的e-Residency平台作为一个数字认证系统,可供爱沙尼亚的居民和在该国有商业股份的人士使用,通过平台的数字认证来获取政府服务。该公告标志着这是公司继Nasdaq Linq之后推出第二个正式的区块链项目。第一次是通过Nasdaq Linq在一位投资人和公司之间成功完成的私人股票发行。

作为试点项目的一部分,爱沙尼亚或爱沙尼亚e-Residency平台认可的投资人将能够较以往更加安全便捷地进行企业管理。通过认证的投资人可以在e-Residency平台很方便地进行电子投票,有了区块链技术的支持,这些投票就能够被更加快速且安全地记录下来,而无需向从前那样需要经由代理投票的流程,那样既耗费人力又不连贯。预计,该试点项目将在2016年开展。

e-Residency项目主任Kaspar Korjus称:“纳斯达克能够选择使用我们e-Residency平台,来为投资人提供一个全新的电子投票系统,我们表示十分高兴。一年前,当我们开始推出e-Residency的时候,我们就知道我们会改变人们对国家和公民身份的看法。现在,有了纳斯达克的合作参与,我们就更有信心对企业管理方面进行改革。”

让股东能够更加便捷且安全地参与公司会议和投票并不仅仅只是一个简单的便捷、安全问题。参与会议和进行投票仅仅只是公司股东参与到企业管理和企业发展的初级形式。通过提高电子投票的便捷及安全性,区块链投票系统将能够授予股东更多权力并提高他们的参与程度。

纳斯达克的主席Hans-Ole Jochumsen表示:“紧随美国自由市场区块链技术交易成功实现的脚步,我们十分高兴爱沙尼亚成为了最新一个推进我们区块链技术的国家。爱沙尼亚作为一个信息社会、富有前瞻性思维的国家,加上规模的灵活性,使得爱沙尼亚获得了首次推进使用电子投票系统试点项目的机会。我们十分期待能够看到在未来的几个月内项目的发展,而且十分期待能够和爱沙尼亚政府展开更密切的合作,为未来企业管理的改革树立良好榜样。”

Just recently, Nasdaq announced in an official statement that its blockchain ledger technology, Linq, was able to successfully complete and record a private securities transaction – the first of its kind using blockchain technology. Blockchain startup Chain documented the issuance of shares to a private investor using Nasdaq’s blockchain-enabled technology.It hasn’t even been two months and Nasdaq is piloting another blockchain-related initiative in Europe, taking the technology from the labs to real-world application.

Nasdaq  and the Republic of Estonia have announced that Estonia’s e-Residency platform will be facilitating a blockchain-based e-voting service to allow shareholders of companies listed on Nasdaq’s Tallinn Stock Exchange, Estonia’s only regulated securities market, to vote in shareholder meetings. The country’s e-Residency platform is an electronic identity system used by both Estonian residents and those with business interests in the country to access government services through e-Residency digital authentication. The program marks the second official blockchain project Nasdaq is executing on after successfully delivering the first private securities issuance between an investor and company via Nasdaq Linq, its blockchain-enabled platform.

As part of the program’s pilot, shareholders who are Estonian or Estonian e-residents will be able to participate in the corporate governance of companies more conveniently and securely than ever before. The e-Residency platform vastly improves the ability to authenticate shareholders for the e-voting service while blockchain technology will allow votes to be quickly and securely recorded, streamlining a proxy voting process that has historically been labor-intensive and fragmented. The pilot is aimed to launch in 2016.

“I’m delighted Nasdaq will be using the e-Residency platform to offer shareholders a new e-voting system,” said Kaspar Korjus, Program Director, e-Residency. “When we started the e-Residency project a year ago, we knew we would change the way people think about nations and citizenship. Now, via our e-voting collaboration with Nasdaq, we will be revolutionizing corporate governance.”

Making it easier and safer for shareholders to participate in company meetings and votes is not just a matter of convenience or security; these interactions are the primary ways that a company’s shareholders interact with corporate management and shape the future of the company they own. By making e-voting more efficient and secure, the blockchain-based system has the potential to empower shareholders and improve their engagement.

“On the heels of the successful execution of a blockchain transaction in the US private market, we are pleased to further advance this technology in Estonia,” said Hans-Ole Jochumsen, President, Nasdaq. “Estonia’s robust information society and forward thinking coupled with the agility its size affords, creates a unique opportunity to premiere the e-voting pilot in Estonia. We’re excited to see the development of this project over the coming months, and look forward to working closely with the government of Estonia to set a transformative example of the future of governance.”
