"The new contract will be cash-settled, based on the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) which serves as a once-a-day reference rate of the U.S. dollar price of bitcoin. Bitcoin futures will be listed on and subject to the rules of CME."

What do you think the notional value will be per contract?

100 Coins X $6500 = $650,000/contract

5% move per day. Margin requirements would be quite large per contract.

There will be a mini-BTC

Henrik Andersson writes: 

I'm also curious so I called CME and asked. Each contract will represent 1 Bitcoin and when the contract settles you will receive the cash amount of the Bitcoin Reference Rate.

    Digital currency will yield most significant global finance disruption ever experienced. Never before has innovation at scale had ability to impact both 1st & 3rd world economies with equitable levels of adaption & import.

    Each of our 7.6 billion fellow planet-dwellers who are unbanked, privacy absolutist, enemies of corruption/manipulation omnipresent in fiat currency, tax sheltering esq., criminal cartel,s etc—-> has now found nirvana.

    The opportunity cost of ignorance will be incalculable.

    This thing is absolutely insane. I bought bitcoin in 2012 and the broker Mt Got went out of business. With all the mercurialness of bitcoin back then I don’t understand how this has been allowed to happen. Is it foreign governments despite to topple USD as world reserve currency?
