The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Group has announced the expected date to launch options on Bitcoin futures in an announcement on Nov. 12.
CME Group revealed: “In response to growing interest in cryptocurrencies and customer demand for tools to manage bitcoin exposure, CME Group will launch options on Bitcoin futures on January 13, 2020,” It is also mentioned that the upcoming product is still pending regulatory approval.
Intentions on BTC futures options
BTC futures options are intended to help institutions and professional traders manage spot market BTC exposure, and enable them to hedge BTC futures positions in a regulated exchange environment. Besides, options would likely enable Bitcoin miners to more accurately hedge the costs of their production.
However, the trading volume and liquidity of BTC futures options are much lower than the heat of recent market discussions. After reviewing some representative cryptocurrency options products such as the BTC option of bitcoin derivatives supplier LedgerX and JEX(acquired by BInance), We found the number of orders is very limited. As a result, the transaction frequency is quite low and the liquidity is very bad.
Comparing to options, the trading volume and liquidity of futures are much higher. In cryptocurrency trading market, perpetual futures contract is the most popular one and more similar to the spot trade without expiration.
