Cboe Considering Ether And Bitcoin Cash Futures Amidst Increasing Competition

Cboe Considering Ether And Bitcoin Cash Futures Amidst Increasing Competition

CBOE Considering Ether and Bitcoin Cash Futures Amidst Increasing Competition With CME set to launch Bitcoin futures on December 18, CBOE considers offering Ether and Bitcoin Cash futures. With the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) signing off on plans for Bitcoin futures, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) set for a December 18 launch, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) may be looking to up the ante by offering Ether and Bitcoin Cash futures. Speaking to Business Insider , CBOE President Chris Concannon termed Bitcoin future contracts as a meaningful development for the scorching-hot cryptocurrency. He went on to appreciate CME Chairman Terry Duffy for pushing forward in this regard, and added that this is the beginning of what will become a major asset class over the next 10 years. With Bitcoin price soaring to record highs amidst the anticipated inflow of institutional money, exchanges are also competing to offer the most attracted future contracts and derivatives in a bid to cash in on the growing crypto frenzy. While CME will probably enter the market before CBOE, Concannon shared that they will be announcing their launch date soon, and are aiming to get their future contracts on the market before the end of the year. Interestingly, the CBOE President also commented on the possibility of launching Ether and Bitcoin Cash futures as the market continues to mature, but there is no such indication from CME, which seems more focused on making sure their Bitcoin futures stay on track. Commenting on their upcoming launch, CME head Terry Duffy said: Though we have worked through a lengthy, comprehensive process with the CFTC to get to this point, we recognize bitcoin is a new, uncharted market that will continue to evolve, requiring continued Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Dives To $10,000 As Facebook, U.s., South Korea Crack Down

Bitcoin Dives To $10,000 As Facebook, U.s., South Korea Crack Down

Bitcoin Dives To $10,000 As Facebook, U.S., South Korea Crack Down Bitcoin lost nearly a tenth of its value Tuesday, crashing below the $10,000 level amid new regulatory measures in the U.S. and South Korea and sweeping advertising curbs by Facebook ( FB ). Other cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin- and blockchain-related stocks tumbled as well. Investors were selling a wide range of financial assets Tuesday, including stocks and commodities. X The cryptocurrency plunged 9% to $10,159.60 after hitting an intraday low of $9,810 according to CoinDesk. Bitcoin peaked above $20,000 on CME futures in mid-December.Ethereum also dropped by 8.7% to $1,079.83, while Bitcoin Cash was down 9.7% at $1,494.91. U.S. regulators are investigating one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges and a related company, Bloomberg reported . The Commodity Futures Trading Commission sent subpoenas to virtual-currency venue Bitfinex and the related traded coin Tether last week, Bloomberg said. The firms have the same CEO. There are said to be around $2.3 billion of the Tether tokens outstanding as of Tuesday. Tether claims all its coins are backed by U.S. dollars held in reserve, but has yet to provide conclusive evidence of its holdings. Meanwhile, South Korea's measures to combat money laundering came into effect. The country, a hot spot for cryptocurrency trading, had previously announced the barring of anonymous bank accounts on cryptocurrency exchanges amid money-laundering fears. Facebook is banning all ads touting cryptocurrencies , including Bitcoin and initial coin offerings. The Facebook blog post said the ban, as part of efforts to crack down on "financial products and services frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices," was "intentionally broad."

First Bitcoin Futures Contract Expires At $10,900, Win For Bears

First Bitcoin Futures Contract Expires At $10,900, Win For Bears

First Bitcoin Futures Contract Expires At $10,900, Win for Bears CBOEs first bitcoin futures contact expired at $10,900 after a turbulent week for crypto markets. The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE)s first Bitcoin futures contract closed Wednesday, Jan. 17, at $10,900 after a relatively turbulent week in the crypto market had briefly brought Bitcoins (BTC) price below $10,000. By Jan. 9, there were 1,907 short position contracts for Bitcoin futures on CBOE. When the futures closed on Jan. 16, BTC had gone down about 36 percent. Reuters reported on the futures contract closing as a win for bitcoin bears over the bulls. CBOE chief executive Ed Tilly told the Financial Times : [The] market experienced a smooth operational close and the settlement process worked as designed. CBOE launched the BTC futures trading on Dec. 11, attracting so much trading volume to their site that it temporarily went down. The day of the launch, BTC prices remained between around $16,500 and $17,500 . Looking back to before their launch, a Nov. 2017 CBOE blog post by CFA Russell Rhoads speculating on the unknown potential of Bitcoin futures reads: The question I am constantly hearing is, How will the futures prices relate to spot bitcoin pricing, and the best (and most honest) answer I can give is, I dont know [...] Ive heard arguments for the futures trading at both a premium and a discount to the spot price, personally I think the best strategy is to see what the market tells us when bitcoin futures are available for trading. CME Group launched the worlds second Bitcoin futures trading on Dec. 18, with each contract representing five bitcoins, whereas CBOEs contracts each represent one bitcoin. CMEs first Bitcoin contracts will expire January 26. Cointelegraph wrote in early January tha Continue reading >>

How To Trade Bitcoin Futures Ultimate Guide Part 2

How To Trade Bitcoin Futures Ultimate Guide Part 2

How to Trade Bitcoin Futures Ultimate Guide Part 2 By HowToToken team In Featured , For traders Cryptocurrency futures are already being traded! Do you know on which exchanges can you find them? Discover your top choices and how can you start trading in a step-by-step guide. Whats next? CME, Cboe are listing Bitcoin futures this month. As you have learned in the previous installment of this series , Bitcoin futures are an exciting new addition to the crypto portfolio. A quick reminder: Bitcoin futures are financial derivatives that means that by investing in them, you are not buying Bitcoin itself. You are entering into a contract with another investor saying that you will buy or sell Bitcoin to or from another party at a defined point in the future and for an agreed upon price. Based on futures you also have options as another form of Bitcoin derivatives. An option provides you with the right to buy or sell Bitcoin later at a predetermined price basically, you buy or sell a Bitcoin futures contract. If you expect Bitcoin prices to fall, you will want to invest in so-called put options. These allow you to sell Bitcoin later at a higher price than market price. Thus, if other investors share your opinion, the value of put options will rise. If you expect Bitcoin prices to rise, youll want to buy call options options that enable you to buy Bitcoin later at a predetermined price. If other investors expect Bitcoin prices to rise, Bitcoin call options will also become more valuable. As you can see, you are not trading in cryptocurrency you are just buying and selling the right to buy and sell that cryptocurrency. Thus, the transactions dont need to be done in cryptocurrency you can do them using fiat currency. This alleviates some of the risks that come with cryptocurrency 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 >>

Ethereum Futures Inch Closer As Cboe Upgrades Trading Platform

Ethereum Futures Inch Closer As Cboe Upgrades Trading Platform

Ethereum Futures Inch Closer as Cboe Upgrades Trading Platform You look at the entire crypto space and you look at what other products have the liquidity and the notional size, a derivative makes sense. So saidCboes president and chief operating officer,Chris Concannon, back in January before adding that any further crypto futures would have to wait until theexchange upgrades its core trading software with the technology it acquired with Bats Global Markets last year. Thats now completed, with the exchange announcing the successful migration of Cboe Futures Exchange (CFE) to its proprietary Bats technology. Chris Isaacson, Chief Information Officer of Cboe, said: Better technology makes better markets, and delivering a best-in- class platform to our futures trading customers was our priority. Gemini, Cboes partner on crypto futures, has provided ethereum trading since at least 2016 and has a daily eth auction. Cboe, therefore, would now have the infrastructure to add ethereum futures, especially since theyve gained some three months experience with bitcoin futures where trading has been fairly smooth. While on the regulatory front CFTC would probably give them the green light under the self-certification procedure especially as its chairman, Christopher Giancarlo, has been quite friendly to this space. Moreover, a further hint eth futures might be on the way comes from the Winklevoss twins, who said their focus was to add obvious candidates for expansionfrom the Satoshi Nakamoto family tree Bitcoin cash, Litecoin. That additional infrastructure would be needed for Cboe to potentially provide bch or ltc futures, with Winklevoss stating their contract takes into account potential expansion. But little would be required on the side of Gemini for Cboe to add ethereum futur Continue reading >>

Ethereum: Q1 Outlook And Price Target

Ethereum: Q1 Outlook And Price Target

ETH has had a huge 2018 and has a lot of momentum with technical upgrades and future roadmap items; specifically PoS. Vitalik has said 2018 will be the year of ETH "in action". That's always a good sign. Price calls see some moderate growth in Q1; with a set-up for a big Q2. Ethereum, the second-largest player in the cryptocurrency market, has made some pretty big moves lately. Since Dec 1st, the price of ETH has surged from $460 to a high of near $1400. This while Bitcoin saw its all-time-high during the same time, but has dropped nearly 50% back from there as the first futures settled last week. As Bitcoin faces ideological challenges, scaling issues, and institutional players coming in that can manipulate price, a lot of attention has turned to Ethereum in 2018. As many question the future of cryptocurrency adoption (will I ever really buy that cup of coffee with Bitcoin?) Ethereum has a far more promising use case, especially in the long term. So much promise that some of the worlds largest enterprises have teamed up to form an alliance on just what this technology holds. 2018 is set to be the year that Ethereum takes its largest moves away from big-brother Bitcoin and into its own realm. Its started off well too; in just the first month positive news on ETH has come out like that the Canadian Government is exploring ways to use Ethereum to increase transparency. The team wrapped up Q4 with announcements of advancements in many facets; including layering, security, and the number of new users, nodes, and accounts. Transaction volume has now doubled and the blockchain (despite some online cat related disruptions) is running just fine. Ethereum is also speeding upup to 20 transactions per second (done in an analysis recently). While this isnt Visa (NYSE: V ) level (o 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. Major cryptocurrenc Continue reading >>

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.

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 >>

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 >>
