Nasdaq to start offering bitcoin futures
The cryptocurrency adoption might increase with the latest decision of Nasdaq to launch bitcoin futures sometime next year. This decision seems even more surprising considering the period of decline in the market. Nasdaq, which is the second largest stock exchange in the world listing companies such as Apple, Microsoft Corporation, Intel and Cisco Systems, partnered up with VanEck, an investment management firm, to offer new cryptocurrency products and derivatives. Gabor Gurabcs, director of digital asset strategy at VanEck said that the companies would start offering “a regulated crypto 2.0 futures-type contract” during a Consensus: Invest conference on Tuesday.
