The Bitcoin ABC development team published its plans for the next 6-12 months for the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on November 28. Bitcoin ABC developers have been working and communicating with developers from different projects, including Bitcoin Unlimited, Bitprim, Nchain, Bitcrust, ElectrumX, Parity, and Bitcoin XT.

Although these are independent projects, each with their own development processes and priorities, we share a common vision for advancing bitcoin cash — While we can only speak for ourselves, plans for Bitcoin ABC align with this shared vision.

According to roadmap, major priority for Bitcoin Cash is to keep improving it as a great form of money. Bitcoin ABC developers want to make it more reliable, more scalable, with low fees and ready for rapid growth. It should be ready for global adoption by mainstream users, and provide a solid foundation that businesses can rely on.

Furthermore, Bitcoin ABC intends to enable enhanced features: to facilitate use-cases such as timestamping, representative tokens, and more complex transaction scripting, when these features do not detract from the primary money function.

The Bakkt cryptocurrency platform has named the exact start date for testing Bitcoin futures. The first users will be allowed to test the tool on July 22.

According to Bakkt's Operations Director, Adam White, the platform will attract institutional investors and set new standards for the cryptocurrency market.

White pointed out that the wider distribution of cryptocurrencies, in particular, is hampered by unreliable pricing mechanisms and the likelihood of instantly falling rates.

Along with these problem-solving solutions that are new to digital asset markets, Bakkt also brings all the other features that institutions would expect in a versatile and broadly accessible market, including: block trades; a fee holiday through the end of the year to encourage trading; market maker incentive programs to encourage liquid markets; and integrations with ISVs and regulated brokerage platforms.

At Bakkt, two futures contracts will be presented - with daily and monthly settlements. Risk management and the securing mechanism for these contracts will meet the standards of the traditional derivatives market.
