Cboe launches Ether Futures in 2018.
Cboe Global Markets in the US, which was behind the initial bitcoin futures, is nearing launching futures of ether. Business Insider UK quotes reliable sources. This could be happening as soon as next year, according to the report. This outlet points out that announcements of new products may create the conditions for trading in second-largest cryptocurrency, according to market cap. It could also open the doors for ETFs. SFOX’s chief of growth Danny Kim said:
Cboe’s offer will let crypto traders take long and short positions with ether. It’s another important step toward a newly accepted asset class. The new investment opportunity I believe will lift crypto from the bearish market to make it a more bullish asset class.
Cboe is reportedly now waiting on a decision by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, (CFTC), before launching their product. Sources close to the issue claim that Cboe’s futures would be based on Gemini, an NY-based crypto exchange, and will use the market as its underlying. Cboe’s futures for bitcoin are also built on this platform. The Securities and Exchange Commission stated in June that it didn’t consider trading ether a violation to US securities law.

Roskomnadzor May Consider Unblocking Telegram
Russia’s telecommunications surveillance agency has stated that it will consider lifting Telegram’s ban if the operator agrees to comply with a court order to allow Russian law enforcement agencies to access encrypted messages. RT reported. Roskomnadzor, which was used extensively by crypto-community members, attempted to block the messaging app Telegram after refusing to give its encryption keys to the authorities last year.
Roskomnadzor stated that it would reconsider its position and lift the ban if Telegram gave assurances they will adhere to the court decision. After difficulties with its efforts to control the Russian internet service, the agency made the announcement. Telegram did not change its position. The company’s legal representative said that Telegram can only share certain data about individual users when required by law.
