Citigroup is working with regulators to start trading bitcoin futures: report

As reported by CoinDesk on August 24, Citigroup is performing the regulatory legwork necessary to start trading CME's bitcoin futures product.

Citing sources with knowledge of the process, CoinDesk said that institutional interest was pushing the banking giant to take up Bitcoin futures trading. Representatives for Citigroup have previously mentioned accumulated institutional interest in crypto trading and custody services.
