    So who is going to provide the sell side? The miners? IB is going to ask for a BTC deposit before you can sell a future? Doesn't make sense, futures are contracts, not stocks...

    So from the institutional side, apart from Goldman sachs, who is actually setup to clear on the CBOE open today?

    “CBOE bitcoin futures pretty quiet so far. Just tiny lots traded. Only $401,600 trading in the first 20 minutes.”
