Is the CBOE Bitcoin Future at long last a viable hedge for long Bitcoin positions?

in bitcoin •  2 years ago 

So now that the CBOE trades a futures contract against BCT sized at 1:1, am I wrong or do people sitting nervously on a huge pile of bitcoin profits now have an instrument to hedge/protect against the downside? Now we need some junior futures contracts worth sub-multiples of a bitcoin to more closely match specific holdings.

I can't think of a more likely vector for bitcoin to gain legitimacy among regulated financial corps.

Thoughts?
