Physically delivered Bitcoin futures are about to arrive...

“A critical element to price discovery is physical delivery. Specifically, with our solution, the buying and selling of bitcoin is fully collateralized or pre-funded. As such, our new daily bitcoin contract will not be traded on margin, use leverage, or serve to create a paper claim on a real asset,” Bakkt had said at the time, responding to criticisms that the contracts could mask “hidden leverage.”

For every one purchase of a USD/BTC futures contract, there will be a delivery of one bitcoin into the owner’s account at settlement. That contrasts with the bitcoin futures markets on CBOE and CME, which are cash-settled, meaning that no actual cryptocurrency assets exchange hands at expiration.

Investors in Bakkt’s platform include Mike Novogratz‘s Galaxy Digital, Pantera Capital, and others.

This is solid news!

My initial post is nearly a year old.

The excitement around Bitcoin and other crypto's has cooled down in the market
and we are now roughly trading at half of last years price level.

Hard to know whether to cringe or to laugh. I did both.

I did have the thought that one of the appeals of crypto currencies is to not be dependent on any central authority or organization; there's a strong element of anarchy to it. Who needs rules? Who needs organizations?

But out in the digital Wild West, you're perhaps subject to the amateur mistake of one guy running everything from his one password-protected laptop, something that would never be done in one of the stodgy old-fashioned things called "banks."

Bob.

That guy is obviously faking his own death for a $100 million. Might be the most obvious scam I have ever seen.

Helping out orphans is the elaboration of a bad liar and psychopath.

People forget passwords all the time. You wouldn't be the only person with the password exactly for that reason unless you had future plans.

He will lay low for a few years on vacation and then start liquidating that wallet.

We should be glad that things are happening in this space, either bad or good news. In the this creates more publicity about Bitcoin and this industry and hypes people to check what is bitcoin and how to buy it.
Every Binance failure like yesterday with their first token sale on their platform binancelabs gives more publicity to the platform and people also check for other exchanges like Kucoin/Gemini etc...
Every big lag on Bitmex/Primexbt (leverage margin trading platforms) that results in liquidation attracts more people to see what is this platform after that they learn about leverage and find more trading platforms for trading.

Everything has two sides and if nothing was happening I would be wondering if this industry is dead. It is far from dead, it is very much alive and will kick ass in the next 20 years.
