The Bitcoin hype calls the big stock market operators on the plan: In addition to the world’s largest futures exchange CME insiders, according to the competitors Nasdaq launch a future on the cyber currency. The introduction is planned for 2018. The CME wants to start with their contract already in December. Her rival CBOE is working on similar plans. The US Securities and Exchange Commission must approve the introduction of new futures. In the spring, it had smashed the request for a listed Bitcoin fund (ETF) yet.
Futures allow investors to bet on rising and falling prices. The plans of the CME are a reason for the current Bitcoin Rally. The rate of the Internet currency rose within a few days from about 8,000 to a good $ 11,000.
