12.2.4 CBOE Hybrid of NYSE & NASDAQ

The CBOE’s market structure is a hybrid of the NYSE and NASDAQ.

I get how the CBOE’s market structure is similar to NYSE’s with the DPM being similar to DMM but in what way is it similar to NASDAQ’s?

Like NASDAQ, there are dozens of market makers that trade the same contracts with the investing public. This is in contrast to the NYSE, where there is a centralized market market (the DMM) that handles all trades in a given stock.
