Introduction to Cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin:

The invention of crypto space was nothing less than a miracle in the financial market. Within such a short span after the innovation, it has promised a considerable hold in this competitive world. Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies. A lot of cryptocurrencies evolved day by day. Bitcoin, Ether, Ripple etc are some big cryptocurrencies.

The crypto space achieved a historical upside in the year 2017 when the price especially of a bitcoin raised to around $19783. However, the next year 2018 proved to be a tough year for crypto space where the price of most cryptocurrencies fell miserably. Today the price of bitcoin is around $3600 but, still, the experts believe that 2019 is going to be the game-changing year for the cryptocurrencies and will uplift the market.

 

Introduction to Market Cap:

Market cap refers to market capitalization. It refers to the total value of a company in shares’ stock. It is calculated as the product of total shares of the company and the total no of shares occupied by the company. For example, if a company X has 25 million outstanding shares and the value of each share is $60, then the market capitalization i.e. market cap of company X is calculated as (25 million) * ($60) = $1.5 billion.

The market cap helps people to compare two or more companies. When a person is going to invest a certain amount of money, he/she looks for the market cap of different companies. It tells about the relative size of the company. It reflects the current worth that a company has at the present time in this competitive world. It is a good measure to help the investors to decide the right company to invest.

Published

on

These days saw the highest and rapid increase ever for Bitcoin futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange as the amount exceeded 18,000. Institutional investors are paying attention to this as the bitcoin future contracts get snapped up at an ever-increasing rate.

 

Record of BTC Contract Size on CME:

cme-futures-trading-volume

Upcoming contracts enable explorers to bet on the prices rather than to purchase the physical assets. So these figures might be a little misleading.

 

When the new product which offers the physically settled contracts hit the market, they will be paying out in BTC which will drive tremendous momentum for crypto markets. Over the past year or so the expectation of a crypto Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) being launched has been telecasted and dominated the news. The year 2018, has been the year of regulation and cooling off which was only to be expected after the previous year of rampant FOMO and parabolic market action.

 

This year 2019, is expected to be different as many industry experts predict the launch of at least one institutional investment vehicle.

 

As per the Block European exchange giant, Eurex is preparing to launch crypto and bitcoin futures so the list of institutional offerings is increasing rapidly. The cognate exchange is operated by Germany’s Deutsche Börse, which will be offering Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP imminently according to the report.

 

Exchange traded funds are the future:

In addition to these future products, there is already one type of Exchange Traded Funds that are actually traded through an ETN (exchange-traded note) which allows investors to get direct exposure to Bitcoin prices. The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) crosses the technicalities of buying and storing Bitcoin but still allows investors to get into the action by buying shares that trade at around a thousandth of the price of BTC.

 

GBTC has been highly popular with over $800 million which is already invested in the Bitcoin fund.

 

Furthermore, Bitcoin is the most popular. The fund eliminates the volatility of buying and owning Bitcoin directly which is something that institutions want.
