BAKKT, the alleged provider of the much anticipated physical Bitcoin Futures, has now posted some details. In addition to information on the minimum amount of Bitcoin, the company also offers some job advertisements. Otherwise, it is still waiting for the crypto community.
There is not much to say about the technical details, functionality and possible effects of Bitcoin Futures.
