In what is major news, it has been officially announced that the NASDAQ is going to be officially listing bitcoin futures in 2019. The New York exchange is one of the most well-known in the world and it will be in the early half of 2019 when this will happen.


Now, all they need is to get the green light from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and they will be good to go. This is a massive step forward in the adoption of cryptocurrencies in the mainstream world. Many hope this will help with the mainstream adoption of this technology.

Talking about this move, the Vice President of the media team at Nasdaq Joseph Christinat said that “Bitcoin Futures will be listed and it should launch in the first half of next year – we’re just waiting for the go-ahead from the CFTC but there’s been enough work put into this to make that academic. We’ve seen plenty of speculation and rumours about what we might be doing, but no one has thought to come to us and ask if we can confirm it, so, here you go – we’re doing this, and it’s happening.”

This comes despite the fact that the crypto markets as a whole have been falling significantly throughout 2018. Many hope that this announcement will help to turn around the fortunes of the markets as global finance is starting to accept this digital currency transition. These bitcoin futures appear to have been in the works by the NASDAQ throughout 2018, so a lot of thought and effort has gone into it.

There are many people wondering if this is a sign of more to come and that other cryptocurrencies will be on the way to join bitcoin in 2019.
