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.
