The British crypto futures platform Crypto Facilities launches a derivative product tied to the Litecoin, CoinDesk reports.

The new instrument, denominated in US dollars, will be launched on Friday, June 22, and will allow investors to buy short and long futures contracts for Litecoin with weekly, monthly and quarterly calculations.

We believe our LTC-dollar futures contracts will increase price transparency, liquidity and efficiency in the cryptocurrency markets.

CEO, Crypto Facilities

Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, commenting on today's announcement, said that futures will provide access to the cryptocurrency to institutional investors, which in turn will increase its liquidity and "make it easier for people to get in and out of litecoin."

A month ago, Crypto Facilities launched Ethereum futures. The company expects that the volume of Ethereum futures trading will reach $ 150 million this quarter, which will be about 10% of the total volume of the site.

This Wednesday, Binance Exchange announced the start of cooperation with the Banxa service, which will allow its users to buy cryptocurrencies for Australian dollars, euros and British pounds.

Payments in pounds are made through the Faster Payments (FPS) system, which provides an almost instant transfer of funds. FPS is a British banking initiative that allows you to reduce the transfer of funds between different banks from three business days to several seconds. Exchanges such as Coinbase and Coinfloor already work with the system.

Banxa allows crypto exchanges, wallets and other crypto platforms to offer instant fiat to crypto conversions. With only one integration, our partners benefit from both local and global payment options while Banxa takes care of all regulation, compliance and chargebacks. We are very delighted to welcome Binance into our growing ecosystem of partners and look forward to working closely with the team at Binance.

According to the latest announcement, in the coming months their number will increase with the participation of Banxa.
