CME Group’s experience and knowledge in bringing the Bitcoin Reference Rate and Real-Time Index to market has enabled us to launch an Ether-Dollar Reference Rate and Real-Time Index.
Ether is based on formidable blockchain technology and the CME CF Ether-Dollar rates will provide a standardized reference rate and spot price index to bring confidence to any trading strategy. Major cryptocurrency exchanges Bitstamp, Coinbase, Gemini, itBit, and Kraken provide the pricing data to bring our dependable and regulated rates to the market.
Both the ETHUSD_RR and ETHUSD_RTI are registered benchmarks under the European Benchmarks Regulation (EU BMR).
Building on the success of Bitcoin futures and options, Ether futures has been added to CME Group's suite of cryptocurrency risk-management solutions.
Trade the cryptocurrency basis with the pricing credibility and transparency of regulated CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) and Ether-Dollar Reference Rate (ETHUSD_RR) benchmarks. Coming soon to Bitcoin, Micro Bitcoin, and Ether futures starting September 27.*
