Bitcoin Futures had been around for a while, just a little before 2018. At first, they were being traded on “Cryptocurrency Exchanges: as an unregulated asset. But in the very first week two highly effective exchanges “Chicago Board Options (CBOE) and Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME)” started trading Futures based on Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Futures is basically an agreement between two parties to buy or sell a financial instrument. When the contract expires, both parties to the contract must buy and sell the instrument at the agreed price – even if the price of the instrument has fallen or risen over time, which in this case is Bitcoin.

Futures are derivative financial contracts that obligate both parties to transact an asset at a predetermined date and price.
