Argentina’s Biggest Futures Market to Add BitcoinsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #bitcoin5 years ago

The largest futures market in Argentina, the Mercado de Termino de Rosario (called Rofex) is considering offering Bitcoin futures to its clients, according to Bloomberg. The move comes as the country literally embraces the cryptocurrency in every sector due to the massive rise in inflation - termed bitcoinization.

While the futures potential in Argentina is huge, Rofex is hoping to capitalize on the potential quickly. The current process is still lin the ‘laboratory’ stage, but the exchange plans to make an announcement before the end of the year.

he adoption in the country, and the embracing of the new futures economy internationally, are signs of increasing awareness and growth for Bitcoin. The news follows the announcement by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) of BTC futures offerings.

The news from the CME is likely a driving force behind the substantial price increases, as the potential for mainstream adoption continues to increase. Prices rose to over $7,500 per Bitcoin yesterday, but have retraced in recent trading.
