After Rally to $1,600, Open Interest on Ethereum Futures Hits New All-Time High

Ethereum makes its debut on CME 

Feb. 8 is the day when the first regulated Ethereum futures in the U.S. were launched by Chicago-based CME Group. Institutional traders are now able to gain exposure to the second-largest cryptocurrency en masse.     

While the launch of CME Bitcoin futures was infamous for marking the top of the cryptocurrency's previous bull run, Diao Wang of the DeFi Alliance is convinced the largest altcoin won't see the same fate.   

And LOL @ those who think CME futures will bring ETH into a 3-year bear market. This will be the worst trade of your life.

At press time, the February 2021 Ethereum futures contract is trading at a premium on CME.
