Bitcoin is breaking its own records by the minute. In fact, the price of bitcoin is going up so fast that news agencies are struggling to keep up with it, and it is possible that we reach $16,000 by the time I draft this article.
Bitcoins’ market cap has increased by more than $100,000 billion over the last weeks. It is currently at $255 billion according to the Coinmarketcap website.
Everything in bitcoin world is moving at lightning speed at present. But it is widely reported that the unprecedented growth is boosted by the upcoming introduction of Bitcoin futures. Following on from the last article about “The race for Bitcoin Futures” where the CME Group was the race leader, with a confirmed launch date of 18th December, CBOE, the world’s largest options exchange, announced that they will essentially beat them to the finish line, with a bitcoin futures launch on the 10th of December. This will give CBOE a whole week of exclusivity.
