Information from major cryptocurrency exchanges Bitstamp and Kraken will be used to determine the CME CF reference rate.
This could be a hint of things to come for the second most popular crypto in the world, including possible US futures.
Some analysts even believe futures were a significant drag on digital asset prices due to allowing speculators to short BTC.
The two have teamed to offer the CME CF Ether-Dollar Reference Rate (Ether Reference Rate) and Ether Real Time Index.
Rollout is expected by CME Group and Crypto Facilities’ respective websites May 14, but formal CME market data platform distribution won’t begin until June 4th of this year.
