NYSE Parent ICE’s New Futures Contract Will Deliver Real Bitcoin
Intercontinental Exchange, owner of the New York Stock Exchange, says it plans to launch a digital assets platform and bitcoin futures product.
Bakkt has delayed the launch of its bitcoin futures launch to January 2019.
The new Bakkt exchange will list bitcoin futures in December, pending regulatory approval.
ICE founder and chairman Jeffrey Sprecher and Bakkt CEO Kelly Loeffler took to the stage during CoinDesk's Consensus: Invest event on Tuesday.
Two weeks after ICE introduced Bakkt, a new digital assets platform, the latter's CEO has set out to explain what the service will offer consumers.
Prime Trust, a Nevada trust company, says it can handle custody for bitcoin, ether and any token issued on ethereum under the ERC-20 standard.
