After more than two years of trying to introduce a cryptocurrency exchange-traded fund it appears that VanEck and SolidX are giving up, at least partially.
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (Cboe) has announced that it won't list Bitcoin Core futures contracts in March.
As expected, there was widespread panic in the markets after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decided to extend the time period for taking a decision on the Vaneck Solidx BTC ETF.
CBOE, considered to be the world’s largest futures exchange by volume, said the ETF would allow investors to speculate on BTC, without engaging directly in the market.
Gemini Exchange hired NYSE executive Robert Cornish to lead the exchanges's technology initiatives, as well as oversee the deployment of NASDAQ’s SMARTS Market Surveillance technology.
The launch of Cboe and CME’s bitcoin futures trading market killed BTC’s bull run and caused the subsequent bear market this year that continues to this day, according to economist Yukio Noguchi.
CBOE President Chris Concannon has said that there will be a major “reckoning” soon in the ICO market, and it will happen in two phases.
Cryptocurrency exchange Gemini will be using Nasdaq's SMARTS Market Surveillance technology for monitoring the marketplace.
Chris Concannon, president of investment firm Cboe Global Markets, has made an appeal to the SEC to not get involved with the development of a Bitcoin exchange traded fund.
The increase in interest from Hong Kong investors was driven by recent volatility in the underlying cryptocurrency markets, according to experts.
The financial regulator of Hong Kong issued on Tuesday fresh warnings over SegWit1x futures, citing concerns over unregulated providers.
