CME Group is the largest institutional provider of Bitcoin futures contracts, and according to a nominee to be elected to the Board of Directors, CME should begin mining Bitcoin to create additional value for its stakeholders.

Dante Federighi has been chosen as a nominee for a director by shareholders along with three other people, competing for two director seats. According to a letter to shareholders filed with the US SEC, Federighi wrote “The CME Group needs to get in front of this trend by building solar, wind, hydro energy plants to power our global operations. Then divert the excess energy to mine Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies... [this would provide] deep knowledge in new technologies changing the global exchange landscape for the CME, that’s a win-win-win.”
