Bitcoin Futures Trading

On Monday, Cboe Global Markets Inc. said it got approval from regulators to start trading bitcoin futures on Dec. 10, 2017. CME Group Inc. will begin trading Dec. 18.

Bitcoin is bought and sold on virtually unregulated platforms, which has made some money managers uncomfortable. There is hope that more professionals will join the cryptocurrency craze as transactions move onto regulated exchanges.

Cboe stated Bitcoin futures will begin trading 6 p.m. Sunday evening in New York.
