Overstock leads in blockchain chatter

In a CB Insights earnings transcripts search for words associated with blockchain technology (blockchain, bitcoin” and cryptocurrency), there was an expected spike in 2017, but a couple earlier blips that surfaced were surprising.

Some companies have consistently talked about blockchain technology more than their peers. Specifically, Overstock (182 mentions), Nasdaq (57 mentions), Broadridge Financial Solutions (51 mentions) and IBM (48 mentions) are among companies that have talked about it the most on earnings calls since 2013.

Overstock saw a spike in “blockchain” mentions on the company’s Q4’16 earnings call. Most of these mentions were around the newly proposed securities lending blockchain platform called tZERO, as well as the firm’s blockchain-focused venture arm, Medici Ventures.
