Ripple Overtakes Bitcoin Cash to Become the Third Largest Cryptocurrency. Over the past two days, the daily trading volume of Ripple surpassed that of all cryptocurrencies in the market apart from bitcoin. On December 15, the daily trading volume of Ripple doubled that of Ethereum.
#TD#Ameritrade and CME are jumping into the burgeoning bitcoin futures market. The move comes on the heels of a slow, yet respectable start in the same market by the largest US options exchange company, the Cboe.
TD Ameritrade, which features the largest futures operation of any online brokerage, will allow #bitcoinfutures to be traded on its platform starting Monday. Another large futures trading operation, #CME, will launch #bitcoin futures on its own platform on Sunday, #CNBC reported.
Customers who choose to come into the market will have access to contracts offered by the Chicago Board Options #Exchange ( #Cboe) Global Markets Inc., but to trade, they must have a minimum balance in their account of $25,000, and also post margin – or collateral – equal to one-and-a-half times higher than Cboe already requires, a statement by TD Ameritrade said Friday, according to Bloomberg.
The entrance of CME into the #cryptocurrency#futures market is significant, because #CME operates a much larger futures #business than Cboe, which started trading in the futures market last week. CME’s entrance in the market means that higher volumes and a higher dollar value of #trading are expected.

Sitting in my kayak having a sup of tea I am overwhelmed with the beauty around me. .
The sound of silence.
It is snowing as the sun makes the water shimmer and shine.
My heated coat keeps me cozy.
In my solitude it is you I am thinking of.
I want this for you.
Whatever YOUR kayaking is.
The freedom within to flow.
Body, mind, soul and bank account.
I m here knowing I can help right from here.
Thank you for stopping by.
I look forward to connecting. ❤️
A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency designed to work as a medium of exchange. It uses cryptography to secure and verify transactions as well as to control the creation of new units of a particular cryptocurrency. Essentially, cryptocurrencies are limited entries in a database that no one can change unless specific conditions are fulfilled.
