Cryptocurrency platform Bakkt plans to begin trading futures on the delivery of physical bitcoins against US dollars, euros and British pound sterling. The representatives of the company assume the purchase of one futures contract on USD/BTC will lead to delivery to the customer’s account 1 BTC per day.
Our first contracts will be physically delivered futures contracts of Bitcoin versus fiat currencies, including USD, GBP and EUR. For example, buying one USD/BTC futures contract will result in the daily delivery of one Bitcoin into the customer’s account.
