People Trust Satoshi Nakamoto More than US Federal Reserve

International Exchange Inc. (ICE), the owner and operator of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is keeping an eye on the nascent cryptocurrency trading markets. Speaking with Bloomberg, Jeffrey Sprecher, ICE’s chief executive, said that it is imprudent to discount cryptocurrencies and that he won’t rule out the possibility of launching cryptocurrency future contracts on one of the exchange operator’s trading platforms.

It’s notable that the downturn has not caused ICE to view the cryptocurrency markets with incredulity. While it’s true that the firm recently partnered with cryptocurrency startup Blockstream to launch a cryptocurrency data feed marketed at institutional clients, it had also been hesitant to jump on the Bitcoin futures bandwagon even at the height of the fourth-quarter market rally.
