The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in its tweet presented the average daily statistics of the volume of trading in futures for bitcoin. The report shows an increase of 93% compared with the previous quarter.
Following the example of CBOE, CME launched BTC futures in December, shortly before the cryptocurrency rose to a record level of $ 20,000. Tom Lee and other analysts believe that the CBOE futures calculation had a dramatic negative impact on the value of the main coin.
The increase in futures volumes indicates a continuing interest from institutional investors who want to conduct operations without necessarily holding a digital asset. In this case, customers do not need to think about digital wallets, secret keys or other difficulties associated with crypto-trading.
Reports show that BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Nasdaq, and other large corporations are exploring cryptographic bills by placing institutional dollars and making new deals.
