The expected launch of the Bakkt will take place on December 12 of this year. It is reported by The Block, citing informed sources.

Also, the material states that the investment bank Goldman Sachs does not plan to create custodial cryptocurrency solutions based on the Bakkt infrastructure. At the same time, the bank is considering the possibility of trading futures on a new platform.

In a recent Fortune interview with Bakkt, Kelly Lofler said that the cryptocurrency market is on the verge of a revolution comparable in size to the one that occurred on the energy market in the early 2000s.

Greater institutional participation in the digital asset markets requires secure and regulated custody solutions. We are impressed by BitGo’s product, unique services, and the management team. We view our investment in BitGo as an exciting opportunity to contribute to the evolution of this critical market infrastructure.

Bakkt is a cryptocurrency unit of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which is the operator of the New York Stock Exchange. Giants such as Microsoft and Starbucks are taking part in creating of the new project, which is positioned as an “ecosystem for digital assets”.

The new platform will offer deliverable bitcoin futures to the market (unlike the settlement contracts for CBOE and CME, these are based on the underlying asset). The platform will support multiple fiat currencies.
