Derivatives marketplace operator CME Group has announced plans to launch a bitcoin futures product in the fourth quarter of this year.

Though the exact release date has yet to be revealed, CME said that the futures would be settled via cash and based on its CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate, an index it debuted in Nov. 2016 in partnership with London-based Crypto Facilities. The futures would be listed on CME, 同社は述べています.

テリー・ダフィー, CME Group chairman and CEO, 声明で述べています:

Given increasing client interest in the evolving cryptocurrency markets, we have decided to introduce a bitcoin futures contract. As the world’s largest regulated FX marketplace, CME Group is the natural home for this new vehicle that will provide investors with transparency, 価格発見とリスク移転機能を提供します。”

同社によると、, the launch is contingent on receiving approval from US regulators. 既報の通り, recent efforts to create financial products around the cryptocurrency have hit some headwinds, particularly those that involve the creation of derivatives contracts.

そうは言うものの, startups like LedgerX – which is licensed as both a swap execution facility and a derivatives clearing organization – have already moved to capture some of the interest and demand in these products. Established firms such as CBOE are seeking to list similar derivatives as well.
