Nasdaq is set to launch bitcoin futures
Nasdaq is hopping on the bitcoin bandwagon. The exchange operator is set to launch a bitcoin futures product next year, a person familiar with the matter told Business Insider. Two Chicago-based exchanges, CME and CBOE, have also announced bitcoin futures products, which would allow investors to bet on the future price of bitcoin. They would also be likely to dampen bitcoin's spine-tingling volatility and help the cryptocurrency push further into the mainstream.
