Bitcoin is set to receive a boost with news that the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is developing an online trading platform that would allow large investors to buy and hold bitcoin. Unlike the futures contracts being offered by Goldman Sachs and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, ‘swaps’ would be utilized to enable investors to buy a contract that would result in the customer owning bitcoin the next day. NYSE clients and investors would be able to directly buy, sell, and hold bitcoin, possibly in a wallet, similar to Coinbase or other existing cryptocurrency platforms.
