CNBC links up with CBOE to offer a bitcoin futures deal on its Link coin, the company said today.
“We’ve been listening to the bitcoin community and the technology and the industry, and we’ve been working on this since March,” Paul Bresser, CEO of CBOE’s Link exchange, told CNBC.
“It’s very exciting that CBOE has agreed to participate.”
The announcement comes a week after CBOE made an offer on the Link token, which is linked to a futures contract.
CBOE was the first major exchange to offer bitcoin futures in March.
The exchange’s futures contract is backed by a fixed $1.2 trillion in market capitalization, and it is expected to trade at roughly $2.20 per share.
