Nasdaq to pursue Bitcoin futures

posted 19 days ago
Nasdaq, the 2nd largest stock exchange in the world, is moving ahead with a plan to list Bitcoin futures. Nasdaq has been working to satisfy the concerns of the US’s main swaps regulator, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, before launching the contracts.

The New York exchange operator reportedly wants to allow trading in the first quarter of 2019. Also, Nasdaq is partnering with investment management firm VanEck to bring a host of new cryptocurrency financial products to market dubbing the effort "Crypto 2.0 Futures contracts."
