Bitcoin Futures, Part 2

It was a tight race between CME and CBOE to be the first one to list BTC futures, but CBOE turned out to be a winner. Bitcoin futures will start trading on CFE platform this Sunday, Dec 10, at 6pm EST.

According to Reuters, CME is scheduled to list futures 8 days later, on December 18th.

The margin information is also available now - but in short futures will offer about 2x leverage. To me this seems quite tame comparing to other bitcoin changes, but roughly in line with what I expected for CBOE or CME.
