芝加哥期权交易所将于近日停止比特币期货交易

世界上最大的期权交易平台芝加哥期权交易所(CBOE)将在6月19日结算最后一个比特币期货合约,之后他们将不再提供任何期货产品。芝加哥商品交易所有33,700份加密货币衍生品合约。


作为第一个上市比特币期货的美国衍生品交易所,芝加哥期权交易所从今年三月开始就没有添加任何一笔新的比特币期货合约产品,虽然该交易所一直在评估是否需要继续交易数字资产衍生品,但到目前为止仍然没有给出明确决定,因此按照之前的计划,将会在6月19日结算最后一个比特币期货合约。


芝加哥期权交易所是第一个交易比特币期货的美国交易所。该交易所在一年半前宣布推出比特币期货,当时CBOE Global Markets当时的总裁兼首席运营官Chris Concannon声称这些衍生品将成为真正的游戏改变者,将彻底改变传统的金融领域并推动其发展加密货币的市场接受度:


“在接下来的10年里,我们认为加密货币市场将会资产和所涉及的货币市场上取得爆发性增长。

Bitcoin Futures Will No Longer Be Traded On CBOE

  CBOE stops trading Bitcoin futures starting from June 19, while CME has recently enjoyed a record high volume of 33,700 contracts for cryptocurrency derivatives.


Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), the world’s largest options market, will reportedly settle the last Bitcoin futures contract on June 19. With the expiration of the last contract, the trading of cryptocurrency derivatives will be officially closed, with no more futures to follow on the exchange.


CBOE was the first American exchange to list Bitcoin futures. The exchange announced the launch of Bitcoin futures a year and a half ago, when Chris Concannon, the then-President and Chief Operating Officer of Cboe Global Markets, claimed the derivatives to be real game changers set to revolutionize the traditional sphere of finance and boost cryptocurrency acceptance。


“Over the next 10 years we believe that the cryptocurrency market will explode in terms of the assets that they touch, the currencies that they involve.”



根据发言人Suzanne Cosgrove最近发来的电子邮件评论,该交易所仍未计划增加新的比特币期货合约:

“芝加哥期权交易所正在评估计划如何继续为交易提供数字资产衍生品,但我们目前还没有什么新消息要宣布。”


芝加哥商品交易所(CME)在一年半之前跟随芝加哥期权交易所上市比特币期货。目前,CME不打算以CBOE为例关闭交易加密货币衍生品。相反,交易所最近取得了比以往更大的成功,达成了9000万美元的交易额度,超过了芝加哥期权交易所的日交易量。此外,在5月13日,CME集团达到创纪录的33,700份比特币合约,一天交易量超过10亿美元。


CME优于CBOE的原因可能是CME的资产定价方法。因为芝加哥期权交易所只依赖于Gemini交易所,但CME正在从几个市场收集数据,这导致交易者对交易所的可信度越来越有信心。

According to the recent emailed comment by the spokeswoman, Suzanne Cosgrove, the exchange still doesn’t plan to add new Bitcoin futures contracts:

   “CBOE is assessing its approach with respect to how it plans to continue to offer digital asset derivatives for trading, but we have nothing new to announce at this time.”


Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) followed CBOE in listing Bitcoin futures a year and a half ago. For now, CME is not going to follow the example of CBOE in its intention to close trading cryptocurrency derivatives. On the opposite, the exchange has recently observed much greater success than ever settling $90 million contracts, which exceeds CBOE’s daily volume. Moreover, on May 13, CME Group reached a record high volume of 33,700 contracts for Bitcoin, processing more than a billion dollars in a single day.


The reason of such unexpected CME’s advantage over CBOE can be CME’s method of asset pricing. While CBOE was relying only on Gemini listing, CME was collecting the data from several marketplaces, which resulted in the growing confidence of traders in the trustworthiness of the exchange.
