We have invested enough work in bitcoin futures. We also know that there is a lot of guesswork on what we are going to do on the market. So, we are making a direct announcement of what we are doing.

The exchange is not affected by the bear market

Christine Nat said Nasdaq was still committed to ensuring the introduction of bitcoin futures, while stressing the company’s long-term outlook for the encrypted currency industry.

Christine Nat said: when this technology first appeared, we noticed it and had entered the area of block chains five years ago.

Christine Nat also said that Nasdaq has invested a lot of resources to launch bitcoin futures. It said: we have invested a lot of money and energy to achieve this goal, and we have been studying this for a long time and began to study the market before the bear market. No matter it’s a bear market or a bull market, it doesn’t affect our bitcoin futures.
