In this context, the platform's CEO listed three factors to confirm that the crypto industry may benefit from Bakkt futures. In particular, she commented on reliability and regulation of the crypto infrastructure, new technologies that cryptos can bring to the market, fast distribution of the innovative management and value spreading.
"We’re starting with the basics: instilling trust through regulation and secure custody, and deploying products that are transparent and regulated to support their adoption," as it was stated in the report.
According to the available information, trading amounted to 63 BTC as of late Monday.
