This move will likely bring new institutional players into the space because they are more comfortable with trading on the CME. Many institutions do not want to trade at boutique cryptocurrency exchanges, and would prefer trading on a well known traditional exchange like the CME.

“Building on the success of Bitcoin futures and options, CME Group will add Ether futures to the cryptocurrency risk-management solutions available to trade in February,” the firm said in a statement.
