Jeremy Allaire, CEO, and co-founder of FinTech company Circle believes blockchain and cryptocurrencies may someday be as widespread as the Internet is today, and he is certain Ethereum will be the industry’s primary driver.
Steve Wozniak, the Apple co-founder is a huge crypto and blockchain enthusiast. Despite suffering at the hands of suspected Bitcoin thieves at the start of the year, his belief in the emerging technology has dampened. Speaking at the “WeAreDevelopers” World Congress in Vienna, Austria, the man affectionately named “Woz” declared that Ethereum could be like Apple in terms of driving a new age of innovation.
In a remarkable leap forward for the Ethereum community, the Chicago-based futures exchange is planning to expand the product offering with Ether futures, Business Insyider reported. According to an August 30 report, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) told market makers that the debut of Ether futures is getting close.
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) President Chris Cocannon has stated that as a result of the SEC’s recent decision that Ethereum is not a security, the Exchange is now open to the possibility of trading ETH futures.
Speaking earlier in the week, Concannon revealed that the CBOE, which has been interested in the ETH Futures market since December 2017 may likely begin to offer ETH Futures contracts alongside Bitcoin Futures contracts which are already traded on the Exchange.
