I'm fairly new to futures and don't trade bitcoin but I'm interested to see how a new market such as this takes place.
I've read it may be an effective way to keep a ceiling on prices if the futures market is heavily shorted, but I have no idea how the connection between the futures price and bitcoin price is actually established. From what I've read the market is cash settled, so I don't know where the "physical" link between the futures market and the bitcoin world exists...
