Cboe Global Markets is looking to broaden its return to cryptocurrency by introducing more products and possibly re-listing bitcoin futures, according to CEO Ed Tilly.
- Tilly told Bloomberg in an article published Thursday the exchange holding company has not "given up" on bitcoin futures despite prior aborted attempts in the space.
- Cboe started listing bitcoin futures in 2017 but ended its offering two years later.
- "We're keen on building out the entire platform. There's a lot of demand from retail and institutions and we need to be there," Tilly said.
