Bitcoin (BTC) is experiencing a good run in the institutional markets, an event that has been represented in the data of the futures trading platforms led by the Chicago Board Options Exchange and the CME investment group. According to statistics published by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), on Wednesday, the BTC trading volume exceeded 3 times the daily average of this platform of agreements for future purchases of Bitcoin (BTC), better known as XBT Bitcoin Futures.

In addition, this Wednesday they reported a total of 19,000 traded Bitcoin futures contracts, trading 18,210 futures for May, some 703 for June, and 87 for July.

No doubt, we will be watching to see if this is a volume aberration or if more and more institutional types are moving into cryptomoney. Overall bullish sentiment continues on XBT Bitcoin Futures.
