Despite the Slow Start, Don't Sleep on Bakkt’s Bitcoin Futures


Bakkt launched its physically-settled Bitcoin futures this week, providing institutional investors with a new way to bet on the expected price of Bitcoin in the near term.

Many were expecting this announcement to fuel prices into a new bull run... instead, prices started to do the opposite.

A few things to clear up...
 
  1. The recent price dump doesn't really have much to do with Bakkt. There's a lot of different ideas floating around as to why charts are red.
     
  2. It's a little too early to claim Bakkt was over-hyped.

In the big picture, Bakkt gives institutions a venue to hold and trade PHYSICAL Bitcoin. The doors just opened, so we can still expect institutions to trickle in.

The "smart" investors aren't going to come running in all at once. Although volume looks like a flop (so far), let's give it some time...

No More Kik Means All Eyes on Kin


Popular Canadian messaging app Kik is shutting down.

Yesterday, Kik's CEO Ted Livingston announced that the company would be closing Kik and laying off 80% of staff as it shifts focus to Kin, its cryptocurrency business that is currently the focus of a SEC lawsuit.
