The earlier announced bitcoin futures trading by CME Group will occur during the second week of December 2017. The head of the company Terry Duffy said this on Monday in the "Power Lunch" show on CNBC.

Terry Duffy said that they want to give other people a place where they could plan risk of Bitcoin. According to him, today it is impossible to make short sales of bitcoin, so there is only one way: either you buy it or sell it to someone else. This creates a two-way market, and it is always more efficient. The Bitcoin futures trading will be launched on the 2nd week of December.

About the plans to launch trading in futures for Bitcoin, the leading stock exchange of financial derivatives CME Group reported on October 31. The new contracts will be launched on a cash settlement basis and will be based on the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) - the reference rate of bitcoin against the US dollar compiled by the CME Group on Bitstamp, GDAX, itBit and Kraken.

Craig Wright to Claim to be Satoshi Again

He explained that the false information surrounding Bitcoin and blockchain-derived systems made him come out of the shadows

A senior researcher at nChain, Craig Wright, sent the Commission on the US Exchange Commodity Trading (CFTC) introductory information on cryptocurrency mechanics in response to a request from the Office. But even in the official document he did not miss the opportunity to remind everyone that it was he who allegedly was the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet. Ethereum is a poorly designed copy of bitcoin designed with the purpose of completing the promise of smart contracts and scripting that were delivered within bitcoin but which were hobbled by the core developers of bitcoin who sought to enable anonymous transactions to exist within the system. 
 

Craig Wright

"Satoshi"

Earlier in February, the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” announced that he possesses a patent, allegedly capable of restricting the right to issue JPM Coin.

In October 2017, Craig Wright made a mistake confirming that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
