芝加哥商品交易所推出以太坊参考利率指数和实时指数

5月14日,芝加哥商品交易所(CME Group)发布公告称,该交易所与英国一家专门从事比特币期货交易的数字资产服务商——Crypto Facilities联合推出CME CF 以太币/美元 参考利率( CME CF Ether-Dollar Reference Rate)和实时指数(Real Time Index)。实时指数将为用户提供实时的以美元计算的以太币价格。

公告称,以太币参考利率将提供标准的参考利率和现货价格指数,这两种指数将由Crypto Facilities公司根据加密货币交易所Bitstamp和Kraken的交易和订单记录计算得出。

芝加哥商品交易所进一步指出:

对这些产品的监督、管理将由独立的委员会完成。该委员会将制定一系列的行为准则,并对实践标准进行审查。

芝加哥商品交易所还表示:

这些产品包括CME CF 以太币/美元实时指数,即ETH_RTI_USD,以及CME CF 以太币/美元参考利率,即ETH_RR_USD。

以太币实时指数将提供以美元计算的以太币价格,365天24小时不间断,提供的是精确到每秒的实时价格,该指数使以太币的价格透明;

而以太币参考利率指数则会在伦敦时间每天下午四点发布。

芝加哥商品交易所董事总经理兼股票产品和投资工具全球主管Tim McCourt表示:

以太币参考利率和实时指数是为了满足不断变化的市场需求而设计的。价格参考来源可靠以及价格透明对以太坊用户来说非常关键。

最近,受到英国金融行为监管局监管的Crypto Facilities公司引入了“第一个受监管的”以太坊期货合约。这些产品将有助于投资者对这种加密货币进行长期或空头头寸的操作。

2017年12月,芝加哥商品交易所和芝加哥期权交易所联合推出比特币期货。

今年5月,旧金山联邦储备银行发布了一封经济信函,暗示比特币期货交易启动导致了比特币价格在达到2万美元的峰值后下跌。

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME Group) in partnership with Crypto Facilities, a UK-based digital asset exchange specializing in crypto futures, have launched the CME CF Ether-Dollar Reference Rate and Real Time Index, according to an announcement May 14. The indexes will provide users access to a real-time Ether (ETH) price in US dollars.

According to a press release, the CME CF Ether-Dollar rates will “provide a standardized reference rate and spot price index”. Both rates will reportedly be calculated by Crypto Facilities, and will be based on transactions and order book activity from crypto exchanges Bitstamp and Kraken. CME Group further states that “the oversight of the products is managed by an independent committee that sets forth a code of conduct and meet to review the practice standards.” According to CME:

“The products include a spot price index called the CME CF Ether Dollar Real Time Index, known as ETH_RTI_USD, and a reference rate called the CME CF Ether Dollar Reference Rate, known as ETH_RR_USD... ETH_RTI_USD is a real time index of the US dollar price of one Ether published once per second 24 hours a day 365 days per year. This index provides real time transparency to the US dollar price of Ether. ETH_RR_USD is a daily reference rate of the US dollar price of one Ether as of 4 p.m. London time...”

Tim McCourt, Managing Director and Global Head of Equity Products and Alternative Instruments at GME Group said:

“The Ether Reference Rate and Real Time Index are designed to meet the evolving needs of the marketplace. Providing price transparency and a credible price reference source is a key development for users of Ethereum.”

Bitcoin (BTC) futures trading was launched in December 2017 by the Chicago Board Options Exchange and Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Recently, Crypto Facilities, which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK, introduced the “first regulated” futures contracts for ETH. The products reportedly will enable investors to take a long or short position on the cryptocurrency.

Earlier in May, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco released an Economic Letter, suggesting that the BTC price decline following its $20,000 peak was the result of the launch of BTC futures trading.
