比特币期货获美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)密切关注

本周三,美国商品期货交易委员会(The Commodity Futures Trading Commission,后文简称CFTC)表示,该机构希望保证芝加哥商业交易所和Cboe推出的比特币期货合约的完整性,确保合约价格不受操控。

上个月,芝加哥商业交易所和Cboe全球市场宣布推出全球首个比特币期货产品,两者的上市时间分别为12月18日和12月10日。与此同时,纳斯达克也计划在明年第二季度推出自己的比特币期货产品。

今年以来,比特币价格出现了大幅波动,并且日渐成为常态。目前,比特币价格已经从今年年初的1000美元一路跃升至16000美元左右。各国政府也曾对比特币及其他加密货币的投资交易风险发出了多次警告。

就在本周三(12月6日),比特币价格一路跃居12000美元以上,这样的涨幅让投资者和相关专家也对市场是否出现泡沫产生了怀疑。

可以说,比特币期货合约的出现说明这种加密货币又得到了主流市场的进一步认可,而期货合约则会让这种新型资产的交易变得更加容易。然而,比特币未来很有可能受到各国政府的监管,所以目前主要的投资者很可能是从未参与过此类交易的短期投资者。

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said Wednesday (Dec. 6) that it is aiming to ensure that the integrity of the bitcoin futures contracts is preserved when CME Group and Cboe launch their futures contracts.

According to a report in CNBC, Andrew Busch, chief market intelligence officer at the CFTC, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that the exchanges are looking at the cash contracts underlying the bitcoin futures to ensure they aren’t manipulated. “Our role as a derivatives regulator is to make sure the futures contract is not manipulated. We’re going to do that for sure,” he said in the interview.

Last month, CME Group and Cboe Global Markets announced they would be launching bitcoin futures, with CME’s product going live Dec. 18 and Cboe’s starting trading on Sunday. Meanwhile, NASDAQ is gearing up to launch its own bitcoin futures in the second quarter of next year, noted the report.

Bitcoin has been volatile all year, with wild price swings becoming common. Bitcoin started the year trading at around $1,000 and recently surpassed $12,000. Because it is unregulated, governments around the globe have been warning about the risks associated with investing and trading in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. “This is a unique animal unlike any commodity we’ve looked at before,” said Busch.

Earlier on Wednesday (Dec. 6), another big rally from bitcoin put the value of the cryptocurrency above $12,000 – a record high, even in a backdrop of investors and experts wondering if bitcoin can possibly live up to these values, or if the bubble is just getting dangerously large at this point.

Bitcoin jumped Friday (Dec. 1) after an announcement via the main U.S. derivatives regulator that it would allow CME and CBOE to list bitcoin futures contracts. That is good news for bitcoin, as it indicates additional mainstream acceptance, and also because the futures contracts will make it easier to trade the new asset class. However, it will also mean that bitcoin will be facing more government regulation, and that it will now be open to something it has never had to deal with before: short investors.
