Bitcoin and its Future: How the Cryptocurrency Evolves

Bitcoin and its Future: How the Cryptocurrency Evolves

Capital Markets CIO Outlook | Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Bitcoin has been leading the cryptocurrency market for almost a decade now, eliminating the need for intermediaries. The U.S. Treasury has identified bitcoin as a virtual currency, whereas the first and largest of its kind are described as a total market value of $19.2 billion.

It is difficult to go before bitcoin as a globally accepted form of money, virtual or non-virtual, with some counties banning bitcoin, although it is decreasing in numbers, with the wider question being that bitcoin itself is lacking in regulation and technological concerns. In the short-or medium-term, technological development will undoubtedly influence the value of markets and with a global regulatory landscape developing, usage and demand are expected to increase, leading to value, the types of returns not visible with cash, and maintaining the status of “cash is king.”

There have recently been two different expirations of bitcoin in the world. Firstly, CBOE, the largest exchange of choices worldwide, while secondly, CME, the largest derivative product portfolio and the most liquid of these two products in terms of its BTC futures.

Many investors were looking to find a way to reduce bitcoin before the launch of the CBOE and CME futures. An open invitation was the introduction of an exchange-listed contract. Furthermore, these future opportunities were settled in cash, hedge funds and crypto-whales saw a profit for doubtful tactics. This was even put forward before the Wall Street Journal’s launch because they spoke of the risk of manipulation. In fact, the fact that bitcoin's price reached its all-time high just before the launch of the CME seemed very suspicious. It is entirely feasible to accumulate physical bitcoin from large investors, thereby increasing spot prices and the future price.

The CBOE and the CME knew these risks and therefore decided to use full KYC exchanges as the benchmark for future prices. In the CME, for example, a collection of five reputable trades was mentioned including Coinbase, Kraken, and Bitstamp. The CBOE referred to the Bill of Gemini. But a large, opaque global market can’t be contained. If global prices start to drop, the reference exchanges will do likewise.
