Cryptocurrencies, and Bitcoin in particular, have been grabbing headlines recently. Last week, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) announce it has partnered with Gemini, the Bitcoin exchange backed by investors Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, as part of a bid to launch cryptocurrency derivatives trading. That followed an announcement the Commodities Futures Trading Commission decided to grant a license to LedgerX to clear and custody cryptocurrency derivatives for assets like Bitcoin.
