The new move, which will see Litecoin Futures added to the platform, plans to allow users to invest in both long and short futures that use Litecoin as an underlying form of value. Timo Schlaefer, the CEO of Crypto Facilities has commented on this move, stating that the move is inspired by:
“A strong client demand for Litecoin contracts.”
"We believe our LTC-dollar futures contracts will increase price transparency, liquidity and efficiency in the cryptocurrency markets."
This of course will no doubt inspire some new interest in Litecoin and Litecoin Futures. Crypto Facilities made a similar announcement a few months ago, through their listing of Ethereum
Futures. As a result of this move, according to CoinDesk, Crypto Facilities are expecting Ethereum Futures trading volume to near $150 Million in this quarter alone. With this in mind, we could also expect to see similar figures crop up for Litecoin Futures trading volumes in the first three months of its availability within the system.
