CBOE's First Bitcoin Futures contract afliep Vandaag

The first bitcoin futures contract listed by Cboe has expired, a move that came amid a turbulent day of trading that saw the cryptocurrency’s price drop below $10,000.

First listed in mid-December, the futures had a rocky start but ultimately those platform issues were resolved. The opening day for the contract saw the price climbing above $15,000.

According to data from CNBC, the F8 contract settled at a price of $11,055, a notable development considering that, at one point today, the price of bitcoin slid to as low as $9,199.59, volgens CoinDesk's Bitcoin Price Index.

Yet in the period of time after the F8 contract settled, bitcoin’s price appears to be reversing the trend it has seen in the past two days. Bij druk op tijd, the BPI is reporting a price of $11,344.66 – a figure that is just several dollars above the day’s open.

Cboe data suggests that the market for its G8 contract (set to expire on 2/14) is trading slightly below the market, with the firm’s official website reporting a price of $11,220.00.

As for what the future will bring for Cboe’s work in the cryptocurrency space, a recent press event covered by Bloomberg suggests that the company may explore products built around other coins – but that is likely to come after more months of work around the futures product.

Speaking to reporters, CEO Ed Tilly said that the process could lead to something like an ETF – a long-sought product – but only if regulators are firmly on board.

“Voordat je in de mainstream [De beurs verhandelde producten], we moeten door middel van een reeks van nederzettingen te krijgen voor die zinvol is om toezichthouders,” Tilly was quoted as saying, toe te voegen:

Those boxes have to be checked before theresa mass roll-out of exchange-traded products.
