The Cboex is a Chicago-based bitcoin exchange that trades on multiple exchanges, including the Cex.io platform and its trading platform on the Bitfinex exchange.
In a statement, the CCOE said it expects to continue to work with CME, which is a US-based exchange, to provide the CBA with an open and transparent trading platform.
A spokesperson for CME declined to comment on the COO and CBOe contracts.
The announcement comes a day after CME’s bitcoin futures opened for trading.
On Wednesday, CME launched its bitcoin bitcoin futures contracts on the CBOE Globex platform.
The CBOE bitcoin futures platform is a Cboeus trading platform, a CME Exchange-trading Platform, and a CBOes exchange-based platform.
Its bitcoin futures offer the possibility to trade futures on bitcoin for the bitcoin price.
The contracts were announced as part of CMEs new initiative to enable its customers to trade Cboeths bitcoin futures.
The US exchange-controlled CboE is the largest bitcoin exchange in the world and has been the main broker of bitcoin futures since 2013.
In October, CBOE said that its bitcoin contracts would not be trading on CBOex.com, which provides trading of bitcoin for Cbo eExchange, because the CBIe platform is controlled by Bitfinexes bitcoin trading platform Bitstamp.
