A week to the day after CBOE launched their Bitcoin futures, CME Group followed up with a smooth introduction to the nascent crypto scene.
Officials investigate Brooklyn blaze that killed mother, 3 children
A mother and three children were killed in a fire that spread quickly throughout their Sheepshead Bay home early Monday morning. During the holiday season, we all need to be cautious with decorations, electric lights, candles, space heaters and other items.
CME Group and Crypto Facilities will involve in the calculation and publication of BRR, which combines the trade flow of major Bitcoin spot exchanges during a calculation window into the USA dollar price of one Bitcoin.
For one, Eurex will likely need a more robust online platform as CBOE saw outages following its release on December 10. But two days later Cboe Global Markets said it was launching its own futures contract on December 10, a week before CME. The price for the contracts started at $19,500 and were up $60 as of Monday morning. The contracts may be bought by institutional investors who are not allowed to purchase bitcoin directly.
"The launch should increase buy-side pressure and potentially be the catalyst that pushes bitcoin above US$20,000,"said fund manager Shane Chanel of ASR Wealth Advisers in Melbourne". The new CME future traded above $20,000 but volume was lowly and the cash price soon slipped into negative territory. "We saw a nice open on light volume, but pretty uneventful so far", Mr Spen-cer Bogart, a partner at Blockchain Capital, said after trading began on Sunday.
Trump administration blames North Korea for 'WannaCry' ransomware
Some researchers have said they believed WannaCry was deployed accidentally by North Korea as hackers were developing the code. Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Bitcoin was set up in 2008 by an individual or group calling itself Satoshi Nakamoto, and was the first digital currency to successfully use cryptography to keep transactions secure and hidden, making traditional financial regulation hard if not impossible.
The general sentiment in the market remains one of caution and that has been reflected in margin requirements for the contracts. Instead, we will closely watch the Bitcoin Futures market as it develops and continue to evaluate the offering for our clients. The margin for an S&P 500 futures contract, by contrast, is just 5 per cent, analysts said. The margin requirement is 35 per cent at CME and 40 per cent at Cboe, reflecting bitcoin's volatility.
