LedgerX Set to Beat Bakkt and Become First to Offer Physically Delivered Bitcoin Futures

Coinspeaker LedgerX Set to Beat Bakkt and Become First to Offer Physically Delivered Bitcoin FuturesLedgerX, the US provider of cryptocurrency derivatives, has announced their plans to dive into the market for physically-delivered Bitcoin futures and become the first US company to offer such a service.On Monday, the company applied for a designated contract market (DCM) license that would allow it to offer physically-settled Bitcoin futures products to its clients. Such trading firms as Bakkt, ErisX, Seed CX, and CoinFLEX have announced the same products. However, LedgerX is likely to have more chances for approval.As LedgerX co-founder Juthica Chou said, LedgerX has an advantage over its rivals as its been trading similar products longer than anyone else:“We’ve been doing LedgerX since 2014 … tons of people have announced plans to do this but ultimately we are the only ones that have done it.”Unlike the existing cash-settled contracts provided by CBOE and CME since December 2017, LedgerX customers would receive the actual Bitcoin underlying a contract after it expires, rather than the U.S. dollar equivalent.According to Juthica Chou, the initiative may target not only institutional but also retail investors. She said:“We’ll be able to service customers of any size, we won’t be restricted to [institutional clients].”Chou added:“I think at this current time we don’t see the demand growing among really large institutions and banks. We are still a $85 billion market cap for bitcoin — really just the size of a large stock. Right now we see the opportunity towards the other end of the spectrum.”When approved, LedgerX will offer Bitcoin, Bitcoin options and Bitcoin futures to retail customers through its new platform Omni. Omni will support trading of futures, swaps, and options for retail users and serve as a provider for both custody and trading services using the LedgerX existing institutional liquidity and the infrastructure.LedgerX Swift VictoryLedgerX first began providing physically-settled derivatives products in October 2017. Within the first week, the company traded $1 million. As Chou stated, the platform proved stable, and they filed for a license with the CFTC.In November 2018, LedgerX started a dialogue with the CFTC and received two licenses, the first one allows acting as a Swap Execution Facility (SEF), which is the company’s exchange platform, the second one lets the company operate as a Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO), which is the clearinghouse.Juthica Chou stated that DCM application is just an additional license, and LedgerX already has the right to offer futures services. She explained:“We’re custodying [bitcoin] in the same way that we currently do, we’ve obviously been live and operational for more than a year and a half, and we have a license from the CFTC, the DCO license, that allows us to custody bitcoin.”Further, Chou said:“For us, this is a philosophically important move because bitcoin is available to everyone and we… really wanted to make our derivatives products available to all investors as well.”Currently, LedgerX has about 200 different firms as customers. With offering physically delivered Bitcoin futures, this number will definitely multiply.LedgerX Set to Beat Bakkt and Become First to Offer Physically Delivered Bitcoin Futures

LedgerX CEO writes expletive-laced blog post on diversity

Paul Chou, CEO of bitcoin derivatives exchange and clearinghouse LedgerX, penned an expletive-clad blog post to address sensitive issues relating to women in the workplace. In the post, Chou, who isn't known for having a fiery personality, wrote "lots of fucking people talk about equality and diversity but that is much easier to do than to practice it. Well, I do and I will talk about it." Chou goes on to tell a story about a senior executive who is about to go on maternity leave, being approached a "stupid asshole" who "had the nerve to ask exactly what date she would be having her upcoming baby." In the note, which was released the day before International Women's Day, Chou writes "I’m sick of people treating the women of LedgerX the way they do and I will make sure it never happens again," and that "there are so many wrong things in DC and I intend to fix it one way or another," adding "for those who ever upset the women at LedgerX with their nonsense, I will go after them and make their lives miserable. Mark my words." When referencing Washington D.C., Chou explicitly calls out a "Mike Gill." Notably, CFTC's Chairman Christopher Giancarlo's Chief of Staff is named Mike Gill. LedgerX recently released the LedgerX Volatility Index (LXVX) which provides a gauge for investors in the spine-tingling bitcoin markets to inform their trading decisions. The index will draw its data from LedgerX's option marketplace.

New LedgerX Halving Contract (LXHC) Product Allows Users to Bet on 2020 Bitcoin Halving Outcome

The halving of bitcoin block rewards is common and is based on the number blocks mined, considering that Bitcoin has a finite supply of tokens, which is the way it was meant to be. Every block comes with a reward for the miner that creates it, starting at 50 BTC at the beginning of these mining opportunities. The pace that this mining reward has halved has varied in the length of time it takes, but it always cuts in half at 210,000 blocks since the last halving. So far, there have been two halving events with another to come, dropping to 6.25 BTC per block, which is why LedgerX has decided to cash in on this opportunity. There are many estimated dates on exactly when the halving will take place, though one time that many seem to agree on is May 2020. No one will know the dated until it happens, which can vary based on the blocks being posted in the network and other variables. If anyone wants to make a wager, LedgerX is opening this door, allowing anyone who analyses the network to have a method of betting. LedgerX announced the new option in a blog post, saying that this is a new hedging instrument that could benefit bitcoin miners. Elaborating, the company stated, “Bitcoin is unique in that there is a fundamental economic risk that is binary. To give an analogy, imagine you are an oil producer such as Exxon Mobile and know that one day in 2020, the number of barrels of oil you extract will go down by half, forever. But you’re not certain which date that will be. This would materially impact planning for investment and operations. Bitcoin miners face this exact risk approximately every four years for the block reward that they earn.” Presently, the firm is offering contracts with particular times that the halving will finally happen, but any occurrences after the selected times will not be paid. Right now, there are five contracts, starting with March 27th and ending on July 31st, which is clearly the safest dated. There is no specific date that these contracts will be made available, but the plan is to offer them before this quarter ends. While the users can determine what they’re willing to risk. LedgerX still will profit minorly with each bet. CEO Paul Chou believes that this betting service offers much more than just a way to win some extra cash. In an email to CoinDesk, he said, “Even if you do not trade the contract directly, we are offering the prices the market has for free to everyone.” He added, “It’s similar to other commodity markets where, when you are planning on how many people, resources and infrastructure you want for the next year, you can view derivatives markets to see how profitable people are expecting it to be.” As the mining gets closer to this halving, it will definitely cause some shutdowns in operation. However, there is even a chance the halving will happen sooner than the projected timeline. Chou commented, “If someone got really lucky and found a ton of blocks over the next two months a lot of miners would go out of business sooner than expected.” Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), XRP (Ripple), and BCH Top Coin Price Watch (Feb 5th)

BTC and ADA Are Showing Positive Signs With Strong Bullruns and Weaker Corrections

The cryptomarket is going through some good times, recovering from the sharp fall it had during 2018. The recovery of the global marketcap, and the high number of developments around cryptos and blockchain technologies has led many analysts to claim that we are close to witnessing not only a stabilization of the markets but also a bullish trend in the short term. Of all the crypto currencies on the ecosystem, BTC has always been the reference token, not only for holding the most powerful position in the top 10 but also for having the highest number of users and software developments. BTC is Having a Great Week BTC has experienced a significant price increase. After a period of constant “Bart Simpsons”, it finally seems that the most important cryptocurrency in the world broke the 5k resistance. This marks an a crucial milestone as it is a a value that could not be reached for months. However, during the last few hours BTC was curiously bullish. The token easily broke the 5.4K to flirt with the 5.6K band. If this trend continues, it could be said that BTC has been bullish for the entire past week, winning between 500 to 600 Dollars per token. BTC. 30 minute candles. After the big green candle, 5580 has become a new support Bitcoin (BTC) 1day candles. courtesy Tradingview Cardano (ADA) Also Shows Some Positive Signs Another token that has been specially bullish is Cardano (ADA) The project that promises to solve the “blockchain trilemma” experienced a a surge of about 10% in less than 24h, standing at one point almost at $0.08 per token. One of the reasons for this rise is the positive reaction of the market to the announcement by Charles Hoskinson (head of the project) saying that IOHK managed to close a an association with the Ethiopian government to popularize the use of Cardano in that region. According to Mr. Hoskinson, thanks to this partnership the Ethiopian authorities, the government will allow its citizens to use ADA to make payments as if it were fiat. Also, residents of Addis Ababa, the capital of the country, will be able to use ADA to pay for public transport services in the city. Right now, Cardano (ADA) experienced a correction that placed the token back to the support at 0.074 USD. The token then went up again to 0.075 with signs of another possible bullish trend in the short term Currently the bullish trend seems to be solid in most of the markets. The signs of a trend reversal are not strong enough to be frightened, however it is important to follow the charts, remembering that cryptocurrencies are extremely volatile.
