CME to Launch Micro ETH Futures on Dec. 6


“Since the launch of Ether futures in February, we have seen steady growth in liquidity in these contracts, especially among institutional traders,” stated Tim McCourt, CME Group’s international head of fairness index and various funding merchandise. “At the same time, the price of ether has more than doubled since these contracts were introduced, creating demand for a micro-sized contract to make this market even more accessible to a broader range of participants.”
