CME bitcoin futures set multiple new records last month, with over 2,960 accounts trading BTC futures, according to a report from Coindesk. The increased interest in BTC coincides with a surge of account sign-ups.
Nearly 1,000 new user accounts have been created in 2019, a 30 percent increase in total client sign-ups. The number of clients holding contracts worth at least 25 BTC bumped from the average of 46 to 49 during the last week of June, another record. Open interest also reached new heights in June, with 6,069 contracts.
