Bitcoin Futures Pave Way for Ether Derivatives From CDS Pioneer Code-named Virtuoso, exchanges backers include Sunil Hirani Follows plans by CME and Cboe to create bitcoin futures The second-biggest cryptocurrency is poised to get a derivatives market, thanks in part to a pioneer of trading credit-default swaps, according to two people familiar with the matter. Contracts on the ether digital currency will be offered by an as-yet-unnamed exchange going by the code name Virtuoso, according to one of the people, who asked not to be named discussing private information. One of its co-founders is Sunil Hirani, who sold the CDS brokerage he co-founded, Creditex Group, to Intercontinental Exchange Inc. in 2008 for about half a billion dollars, the person said. The plan comes on the heels of CME Group Inc. and Cboe Global Markets Inc.s decision to offer bitcoin futures, a sign the cryptocurrency business is maturing . Derivatives on bitcoin and ether could help lure professional traders and investors, whove been hesitant to dive into unregulated digital currency markets. Though bitcoin gets more headlines, ether is serious business. Its linked to the ethereum blockchain.

Ethereum Price Analysis: The Future Looks Bright For Eth

Ethereum Price Analysis: The Future Looks Bright For Eth

Ethereum Price Analysis: The Future Looks Bright for ETH William M. Peaster on December 2, 2017 / 0 Comments Just how high can Ethereum go ? Thats the question were all asking ourselves as the number two cryptocurrency by market capitalization is vaulting to unprecedented all-time price highs in Q4 2017. And as it stands right now, it really looks as if Ethereum and its associate fuel Etherhave unlimited adoption potential in the decades ahead. Thats because if Bitcoins appeal is as digital gold, then Ethereums appeal should be as the crypto revolutions Microsoft 2.0. Thats because you can build a seemingly limitless number of utilities atop of Ethereum. To this end, civilization itself may be running atop Ethereum in a handful of years if the project can live up to is promise. With these theme in mind, lets dig a little deeper. To Ethereum enthusiasts, the so-called flippening is the day in which ETH overtakes Bitcoin as the crypto with the highest market cap. Essentially, then, the day in which ether becomes the #1 crypto. Could it happen? Without a crystal ball, no one knows for sure right now. But what is clear is that however much of a darkhorse any cryptocurrency is at the moment ETH is one of the best positioned cryptos to one day overtake BTC. To be clear, were not saying that will happen. But we are saying its possible. One crucial factor to consider is the politics of the cryptocurrency space. Bitcoin bills itself as a currency. This automatically puts it in a position to be in competition with governments who mint their own currencies. And as BTC continues to make traditional currencies more pointless, some governments may want to lash out and crackdown on accordingly. Whether these governments could succeed in hampering Bitcoin effectively is certainly up f Continue reading >>

Ethereum Futures Will Likely Launch Sooner Than You Think

Ethereum Futures Will Likely Launch Sooner Than You Think

Ethereum Futures Will Likely Launch Sooner Than You Think Home / News / Ethereum Futures Will Likely Launch Sooner Than You Think The first ethereum futures contracts will likely be trading on a regulated U.S. derivatives exchange within the very near future, providing the second-largest cryptocurrency with its first exposure to the institutional markets. The launch of bitcoin futures on U.S. exchanges Cboe and CME is expected to be a watershed event, introducing a wave of liquidity to the bitcoin ecosystem and transforming bitcoin into a mainstream financial instrument and portfolio asset .However, analysts who follow the industry closely believe that the ripple effect of these futures contracts will spill over into the broader cryptoasset markets. Speaking with financial news network Cheddar , Ethereum co-founder Joseph Lubin hailed the advent of bitcoin futures as validation of not just bitcoin but also the fundamental nature of cryptocurrency itself. I think it signifies that real financial institutions are taking this new form of money or commodity very seriously, Lubin said, forecasting that the SEC will approve cryptoasset-based ETFs in the near future. Lubin, who also founded blockchain software development company ConsenSys, then went a step further, suggesting that there would soon be ETFs for not only bitcoin but also ethereum. Given that the SECs chief objection to bitcoin ETFs has been that the funds proposed base products bitcoin futures do not currently exist, this signaled that Lubin believed that ethereum futures were looming on the horizon. When pressed to give an exact date, he demurred, although he hinted that months would be a long, long time to wait for the release of this product. This should not be surprising because although bitcoin is the domi Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Today: Price Predictions Get Bold, Nasdaq Considers New Futures Market

Bitcoin Today: Price Predictions Get Bold, Nasdaq Considers New Futures Market

Bitcoin Today: Price Predictions Get Bold, Nasdaq Considers New Futures Market Bitcoin prices were gaining Tuesday. These are the headlines you can't miss. After Monday's further depressed bitcoin prices, Tuesday brought a warmly welcomed return to gains across the cryptocurrency board. In late afternoon trading, bitcoin rallied nearly 5% to top $11,000 once again. Ethereum, ripple and bitcoin cash all gained, too. These are the top bitcoin headlines you need to know for Tuesday, Jan. 23. Data scientist Xoel L Lopez Barata says that bitcoin could reach $55,530 by the end of 2018, according to his new research. The same study suggests that there is only a 10% chance that bitcoin remains at its current level. The research was first reported by crypto website Bitrazzi. Barata concludes there is an 80% chance that bitcoin will end the year between $13,200 and $271,277. Bitcoin Billionaire to Launch It Into Space Venture capitalist Tim Draper of Draper Fisher Jurvetson is advising and investing in startups, cultivating one that wants to bring blockchain technology to space . Specifically, SpaceChain is building the world's first open-source satellite network that runs on blockchain nodes. That means the network uses satellites as blockchain sites for data processing and in-space data storage. The firm is also conducting research to enable space travel and related technology. Draper is well-known in the crypto world -- he won an $18 million U.S. Marshals auction of bitcoin in 2014 that's now worth about $330 million. TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. ( AMTD ) CEO Timothy Hockey said trading in cryptocurrencies has shrunk some since bitcoin valuation has fallen over the last month. "Media attention on cryptocurrency was at a frothy level, and it coincided with market highs," Hockey Continue reading >>

Top 3 Ethereum Project Price Predictions For 2018

Top 3 Ethereum Project Price Predictions For 2018

You might also like Litecoin Price Predictions 2018 I wrote this headline in June 2017, not sure if I should keep it when I will update the article next time. The price of an Ether should outperform that of a Bitcoin for the coming duration. What this means is that a dollar invested in Ether will return a higher ROI than investing the same dollar in Bitcoin. This indeed can be hard to believe in December 2017 when looking at Bitcoin price, but we all know that less than 4 weeks ago it was under $6,000. Most likely Bitcoin its being used by short term investors these days. In fact, the CEO of hedge fund Polychain Capital, Olaf Carlson-Wee, is of the opinion that the entire market capitalization of Ethereum will exceed that of Bitcoin by the end of this year. At least, thats his Ethereum price predictions for 2018. You can read here my BITCOIN PRICE Predictions for 2018 . There is plenty of evidence to support Olafs view. On the one hand, the previously mentioned 20-fold explosion of Ether in 4 months versus the 8.5 times growth of Bitcoin in a year and a half. Besides that, the fact that Bitcoin has lost almost half of its market share to Ethereum during the past four months. To put matters into perspective, four months ago, 90% of all money invested in cryptocurrency was invested into Bitcoin. Curiously, this number has dropped to somewhere around 45%. Conversely, Ethereums share of the total money invested has increased four times in size, making it approach the 30% area. Another indicator showing that Ether can overtake Bitcoin can be found by looking at whos backing each type of currency, as well as why they are backing said currency. Bitcoins focus on payment technology makes it popular with governments, such as Japans and Chinas governments. On the other hand, Eth Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Futures Are Just The Beginning As Clients Want More

Bitcoin Futures Are Just The Beginning As Clients Want More

Bitcoin futures made theirfirst appearance more than two months ago. It was Cboe Global Markets Inc., who introduced Bitcoin futures in Decemberbeing followed by CME Group Inc. Now, two months later, acceptance of Bitcoin futures is growing. Bob Fitzsimmons, managing director and head of Wedbush Futures, who spent decades in the trading pits focusing on traditional futures and options products, has a positive outlook for the digital-currency market. Clients are asking, when is Litecoin, when is Ripple, Fitzsimmons said. According to the data from Bloomberg , recently Cboe Global Markets Inc. finished upgrading the technology at its futures exchange.Cboe announced successful migration of Cboe Futures Exchange to proprietary technology platform. Relying onFitzsimmons prediction,the next step is new coins being rolled out on the CME Group Inc. and Cboe Global Markets Inc. platforms,and possibly exchanges becoming linked to physical delivery of digital assets, rather than cash-settled trading. Success of futures trading on commodities platformswas not approved byskeptics.Cboe cash-settled bitcoin futures market created a number of anomalies and concerns, as Bitcoin futuresarevery volatile assets. The launch reminds me of the U.S. Treasury market in the 1970s, Fitzsimmons said. Interest rates were falling and the pits were a frenzy. Such questions as How can a futures market track an underlying asset that trades on multiple exchanges? and How can a regulated futures market reflect an unregulated market? were of prime concern. In the early stagesof bitcoin futures platforms,eliminating or minimizing the arbitrage, as well as difference between prices of bitcoin on the CME, Cboe, and at other digital-currency exchanges was important. But now, according to Fitzsimmons, there a Continue reading >>

Home Cryptocurrency Ethereum Ethereum Price Forecast: ETH Crosses $1,000 Despite Troubling Signals Ethereum Price Forecast: ETH Crosses $1,000 Despite Troubling Signals Gaurav S. Iyer, IFC Profit Confidential 2018-01-05T08:43:56Z 2018-01-05 08:43:56 ethereum news ethereum price forecast eth price ethereum to usd ethereum to bitcoin ethereum prices cftc Ethereum crossed $1,000 for the first time, in spite of some worrying signals. It is one step closer to our $1,500 Ethereum price forecast for 2018. Ethereum [caption id="attachment_114484" align="alignleft" width="300"] As I sit down to write this market update, Ethereums price is the most glaring number to report. Namely, that the average ETH price topped $1,000 for the first time ever.The crypto advanced 4.63% against the U.S. dollar, bringing the Ethereum to USD exchange rate to $1,025.07. It is a landmark moment, to be sure.However, I feel compelled to include a few other scraps of information that caught my eye. Some of them are quite disturbing.For example, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTS) is meeting to review complaints about Bitcoin futures. Ostensibly, the issue is whether or not there should have been public debate before the Chicago Board Options Exchange (Cboe) and Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) were allowed to list Bitcoin futures.But there are other, deeper concernsHow can anyone, for instance, take a short position on Bitcoin futures without risking financial ruin? The volatility is unlike anything weve ever seen, meaning that marking to market would be an exercise in cruelty.Members of the Futures Industry Association (FIA) voiced these concerns last month, but too many market participants were blinded by optimism. Now it appears as if the CFTC is reconsidering its position. This could Continue reading >>

Where Will Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple And Other Cryptocurrencies Be Twenty Years From Now?

Where Will Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple And Other Cryptocurrencies Be Twenty Years From Now?

Where Will Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple And Other Cryptocurrencies Be Twenty Years From Now? (Photo Illustration by Chesnot/Getty Images) Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies have been on a roller coaster lately. Sharp upturns have been followed by sharp downturns, with each upturn and downturn lasting only a few weeks or a few days. Thus far, the cryptocurrency roller coaster has helped speculators who have been on the right side of the market to amass fortunes. The trouble is that no speculator is smart enough or lucky enough to time the market. At least thats what mainstream financial economics claims. Seven-Day Price Change For Major Cryptocurrencies Source: Coinmarketcap.com 2/2/18 at 7:30 p.m. Sooner or later, speculators who play this game will find themselves on the wrong side of the market, losing the fortunes they amassed early on and then some. Thats why cryptocurrency investors should look beyond the current roller coaster, and ask where cryptocurrencies will be20 years from now. [Ed. note: Investing in cryptocoins or tokens is highly speculative and the market is largely unregulated. Anyone considering it should be prepared to lose their entire investment. Disclosure: I don't own any Bitcoin.] Unfortunately, almost anything connected with the future of Bitcoin is speculative right now, says Jason Labrum, founder and president of Labrum Wealth Management. When you look at the sophistication level of the average person buying Bitcoin, its scary. They just see an asset that at times has gone up a whole lot in value, so you get a herd mentality of people wanting to jump on the bandwagon. Labrum isnt clear how things will look in20 years from now. It will be interesting in 20 years to look back on the conversations we are having today abo Continue reading >>

Bitcoin's January Struggles May Hold Clues For The Near Future

Bitcoin's January Struggles May Hold Clues For The Near Future

Bitcoin's January struggles may hold clues for the near future Bitcoin tumbled 28 percent in January amid a widespread sell-off that saw just a third of the 15 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization rise for the month, according to CoinMarketCap data. In contrast, ethereum, neo and stellar jumped last month. "Altcoins are going to become more dominant," says CNBC's Jon Najarian, co-founder Investitute.com. He expects many more cryptofunds will launch and the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies will quadruple to $2 trillion this year. After bitcoin's struggles last month, several analysts see other digital coins gaining ground in a cryptocurrency world that is trying to mature. Bitcoin tumbled 28 percent in January amid a widespread sell-off that saw just a third of the 15 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization rise for the month, according to CoinMarketCap data. "Altcoins are going to become more dominant," said CNBC's Jon Najarian , co-founder Investitute.com. He noted that bitcoin transactions are getting more expensive, and the cryptocurrency is turning into more of an investment asset than a unit of exchange. "I love bitcoin. I trade it. I own some right now, but I own far more of ethereum , neo and some of the others," Najarian said. He expects the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies will quadruple to $2 trillion this year. The top three performing cryptocurrencies in January, among the 15 largest, were neo, stellar and ethereum, according to CoinMarketCap. Bitcoin's share fell from about 38 percent to 33 percent of the market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies, the website's data showed. "I think ethereum will overtake bitcoin in terms of market size," said Nick Kirk, quantitative developer and data scientist at C Continue reading >>

Bitcoin And Ethereum Price Forecast Bitcoin Futures Open For Trading In Cboe

Bitcoin And Ethereum Price Forecast Bitcoin Futures Open For Trading In Cboe

Bitcoin and Ethereum Price Forecast Bitcoin Futures Open for Trading in CBOE The bitcoin prices have been very volatile over the weekend as the prices dipped towards the $13000 region only to recover as we headed to the end of Sunday and the prices have since bounced back to the $16000 region as of this writing and seems to be ready for another bullish leg. But it has to be noted with care that the bitcoin futures trading has begun at the CBOE and this is likely to lead to some good 2 way trading at that exchange. We also have reports saying that there have been some very strong volumes in this market since its open which should lead to some volatility in the prices. So it is advisable for the traders to wait it out and see what kind of volatility and price action is caused by the introduction of the bitcoin futures and then jump in on the longs. The futures are going to be launched at the CME as well in a weeks time and this is going to add even more liquidity and volatility in the markets as we near the end of what has been a momentous year for the bitcoin industry. This futures trading is only going to add to the intrigue and we will have to see how the market responds to this development or whether it is just going to shrug off this development and continue to move higher. The ETH market has been slowly recovering from the congestion in its network over the last week and this has helped the prices to recover a bit over the weekend. After making a journey towards the $500 region, we are now seeing the prices back below the $450 region and it looks as though this consolidation and ranging would continue. How Blockchain will change our Life, Economy and the World Looking ahead to the rest of the day, we expect the BTC market to continue to remain bullish and if this c Continue reading >>

Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum Prices Fall After South Korea Trading Ban Talk

Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum Prices Fall After South Korea Trading Ban Talk

Major cryptocurrencies including bitcoin , ripple and ethereum took a hammering Thursday following the news that South Korea could be preparing to ban trading in digital coins . At 7:25 a.m. London time, bitcoin was down nearly 6 percent, while ethereum fell over 11 percent and ripple took a 9 percent tumble, versus their price a day ago, according to data from Coinmarketcap.com. Many of those coins began to pare losses later in the morning. Ripple was up nearly a tenth of a percent by 8:10 a.m. London time. South Korean Justice Minister Park Sang-ki said Thursday that the ministry is "basically preparing a bill to ban cryptocurrency trading through exchanges." At around 4.50 a.m. London time, a few minutes after news, over $106 billion of value was wiped off of the entire cryptocurrency market when compared to the market capitalization at the beginning of the day on Thursday. It has since pared some of those losses. This fall in prices comes after two major cryptocurrencies hit record highs. Ripple hit an all-time high of $3.84 on January 4 . It has fallen over 50 percent since then as of 8:00 a.m. London time on Thursday. South Korea is one of the major cryptocurrency trading markets. It accounts for somewhere in the region of 6 percent to 12 percent of bitcoin trading, according to industry website CryptoCompare. For ethereum, this figure is higher at around 14 percent. Ripple buying in the South Korean won can be as high as 33 percent, depending on the day. The country's government did not give concrete details about any potential new legislation. Reuters reported that the proposed ban on cryptocurrency trading was announced after "enough discussion" with other government agencies including the nation's Finance Ministry and financial regulators.

We won't share your email address or send you any spam - we promise! Get rewarded for your knowledge and insight Augur is a prediction market platform that rewards you for correctly predicting future real-world events. You make your predictions by trading virtual shares in the outcome of events happening in the real-world. If you think Hillary Clinton will be elected President, the Yankees will win the World Series, or Leonardo DiCaprio will win another Oscar, then you'll buy shares in those outcomes. If you buy shares in the correct outcomes, you'll win real money profits. The prices of the shares you trade in any event adds up to one dollar - so if you buy a share at even odds it will cost you 50 cents. If you end up being right, you'll get back one dollar for every share you bought. If you're wrong then you've lost the money used to buy your shares. As with any market, the price of shares fluctuates over time. As more people buy shares in an outcome, the price of that outcome will rise while the price of other outcomes will fall. This gives you further opportunities for profit - by buying low and selling high, before the final result of the market is known. Stunningly accurate forecasts on any topic Augur's prediction markets provide powerful predictive data - you can think of the current market price of any share in any market as an estimate of the probability of that outcome actually occurring in the real world. For example, a share priced at 64 cents has a 64% probability of happening. The accuracy of prediction markets rests in the idea of the "The Wisdom of the Crowd". This states that the average prediction made by a group is superior to that made by any of the individuals in that group. Markets are the perfect way to aggregate this collective wisdom - which i Continue reading >>

Market Manipulation 101: Bitcoin Futures

Market Manipulation 101: Bitcoin Futures

Matthew De Silva January 15, 2018 11:31 PM This week, the Gemini auction price could get a little out of hand. Heres one possible scenario for the settlement of the first bitcoin futures. Tomorrow, the future of bitcoin will be determined. No, I'm not referring to another hard fork . Actually, on January 17, 2018, the first bitcoin futures contracts will settle. Cash-settled bitcoin futures allow traders and institutions to place bets on whether the price of bitcoin will rise or fall without holding bitcoin itself. The CBOE's bitcoin futures are the first cryptocurrency derivative listed on a traditional exchange . Unfortunately, because of the contract 's unique design, there could be some complications. To understand the nuances of the cash-settled contract , it might be worth revisiting previous coverage byETHNews. In the most basic terms, a person can agree to buy or sell a contract tied to the price of bitcoin at a future date (the benchmark price). Whether the contract 's buyer receives or loses money is based on whether the benchmark price determined by a 4 p.m. ET auction held by Gemini is higher or lower than the price paid for the contract . (The contract 's seller would also receive or lose a corresponding amount, less expenses). Note: Each CBOE bitcoin futures contract relates to the underlying price of one bitcoin. The benchmark price is the single most important factor in whether bettors win or lose money on their bitcoin futures. As such, CBOE's bitcoin futures contracts could be vulnerable to manipulation because the 4 p.m. ET Gemini auction is the sole determinant of the benchmark price. The auction is potentially a single point of failure. Amplifying the problem is the auction's relatively low volume, which could make the ultimate settlement price sus Continue reading >>
