Cindy Ord/Getty ImagesAround 2013, Netflix began to see the writing on the wall: The days of licensing a back catalog of great TV shows for dirt cheap were numbered.

In fact, the model we use today for settling trades and ensuring proper share ownership is still based on the one initially created in the 17th Century.
A DECENTRALIZATION OF EQUITIES?
Today’s infographic comes to us from Equibit, and it envisions what a decentralized securities platform could look like.
In such a paradigm, the settlement of trades would not occur through centralized transfer agents, but instead through a blockchain with this feature “built in”.
The application of blockchain technology could take the modernization of the stock market one step further.
