Bloomberg: Nasdaq Planning to Launch Bitcoin (BTC) Futures in Q1 2019
According to a recent report by Bloomberg that cites two individuals familiar with the matter, Nasdaq has been working to address the concerns of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) before launching the contracts.
This news comes after previous reports in the Abacus Journal, which cited a “trusted Nasdaq source” familiar with the matter, revealed that the financial giant is making a concerted effort to push forward the listings of several notable cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH), as early as 2019.
