CME's Bitcoin futures product is continuing to show signs of increased popularity, with June setting a new record for open interest amid a surge of new account sign-ups. More than 2,960 accounts have traded CME Group's Bitcoin (BTC) futures across all client types and time zones since launch, according to new data from the derivatives marketplace.

In 2019, more than 950 new accounts were created, a 30% increase in total client sign-ups. In addition, the number of large open interest holders, entities that hold contracts worth at least 25 BTC, grew to 49, up from 46 last week, a new record.
