Bitcoin futures launch sends bitcoin up $1,000

traders cboe

  • Bitcoin futures went live on Cboe Global Markets, the Chicago-exchange group, Sunday night.
  • Liquidity appears to be thin and Cboe’s website has crashed.
  • The price of bitcoin soared by more than $1,000 after the contracts went live.

Bitcoin futures went live on Cboe Global Markets, the Chicago-based exchange group, Sunday evening and the price of the red-hot coin shot up.

Cboe’s future contracts, which trade under the ticker XBT, allow investors to bet on the future price of bitcoin. Bitcoin shot up over $1,000 after investors could start purchasing contracts at 6:00 p.m. ET.

According to data from CoinDesk, bitcoin soared from $14,509 a coin at 5:59 p.m. ET to $15,704 at 6:07 p.m. It gave up some of those gains and was trading at $15,178 at 6:11 p.m. The futures contracts were trading at $16,000 soon after the market went live, higher than where bitcoin was trading in the spot market at the time of print.

Trading in the early stages seemed to be muted, with only a couple hundred contracts purchased. Most trades were of just one contract.

Still, interest in the new market appeared to put pressure on Cboe. Its website experienced outages soon after trading of bitcoin futures was underway. Here’s Cboe in a tweet:

“Due to heavy traffic on our website, visitors to  may find that it is performing slower than usual and may at times be temporarily unavailable. All trading systems are operating normally.”

“The launch is going as expected sans [Cboe’s website] crashing,” John Spallanzani, chief macro strategist of GFI Group, told Business Insider. “It speaks to the interest in bitcoin. There hasn’t been this much interest in something since the internet boom.”

Bitcoin futures are the latest evolution in the market surrounding the cryptocurrency, which has appreciated more than 1,400% this year. Two other exchange operators are also set to launch their own bitcoin futures contracts.

There are a number of reasons why bitcoin futures products are a big deal for Wall Street and the world of crypto. First, the launch of bitcoin futures by establishment firms is likely to to open the door to wider participation in bitcoin trading by other Wall Street firms. It could also pave the wave for an exchange-traded fund, which could bring more investments into the space. Most importantly, it could help dampen bitcoin’s spine-tingling volatility.

The first bitcoin futures depend on trading at the Winklevoss twins’ tiny exchange — and that’s a problem

How Mark Zuckerberg runs Facebook, the best place to work in America

Mark Zuckerberg Facebook CEO Harvard speech

• Business Insider took a look inside the daily routine of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

• Facebook is now the most desirable place to work, according to Glassdoor — and Zuckerberg is popular with reviewers, too.

• His typical schedule includes exercise, family time, and tons of travel.

Mark Zuckerberg has a lot on his plate.

The 33-year-old runs Facebook, the social media giant with a market cap of $505.63 billion. What’s more, Facebook just snagged the top spot in Glassdoor’s annual rankings of the most desirable places to work. Reviewers on the career site specifically pointed to Zuckerberg himself as a big draw.

While the tech CEO dedicates a ton of time to the company, Zuckerberg still makes the time to exercise, travel extensively, and spend time with his family.

He stays productive and balanced by eliminating non-essential choices from his life and setting ambitious goals for himself.

Here’s a look at an average day for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg:

Once he’s gotten his morning updates, it’s time to work out. Zuckerberg typically exercises about three times a week.

Sometimes he brings his dog Beast along. The tech CEO says running with his pet has the “added bonus of being hilarious” because it’s “basically like seeing a mop run.”

Amazon may be getting ready to go on a digital media buying spree

jeff bezos amazon

  • Amazon is looking to hire a Corporate Development Senior Manager to oversee potential digital acquisitions.
  • The job would seem to signal that Amazon is making a new push into digital media and advertising with deals.
  • It’s a high-level gig that would entail interaction with CEO Jeff Bezos.

Does Jeff Bezos want some digital media under his tree? A recent job posting may serve as the Amazon mogul’s list for Santa.

Amazon is seeking a Corporate Development Senior Manager who will be charged with managing and executing acquisitions across the company, according to a LinkedIn post.

“There will be a particular emphasis on supporting transactions in the digital media, digital products and emerging technology sectors,” reads that posting.

That’s an intriguing emphasis, considering that when it comes to digital media and advertising, Amazon has generally been a builder, not a buyer. Indeed, as the company has quietly amassed a formidable digital ad business over the past few years – one that may see as presenting a legitimate challenge to the dominant Google/Facebook duopoly – Amazon has focused on building its own custom suite of advertising technology.

And as it elected to stream 10 NFL games this year, and deliver and track some ads during those games, it largely took the same approach.

The glaring exception, of course, is Amazon’s nearly $1 billion deal to acquire the live gaming platform Twitch in 2014. Amazon has continued to run Twitch separately from its growing advertising portfolio.

Business Insider spoke to Amazon’s top advertising executive last week during the Ignition conference – and he was coy about the company’s broader advertising ambitions.

But there’s little question Amazon is getting far more serious about ads. The question is, how big do they want to go in terms of making deals. One clue: the job means face time with Bezos.

This role is a highly visible position that interacts with Amazon’s most senior leaders including frequent interaction with Amazon’s CEO and CFO.

He/she will be required to handle multiple projects across a variety of business categories including digital media and digital products.

Besides getting time with the big boss, candidates should be able to spot a good deal. “Proving you are an effective negotiator is a critical part of this job.” Hey, it’s Amazon.

The question is, what might this person be negotiating for? Could he or she be on the hunt for:

  • Ad tech startups?
  • A company in the TV/video sector that would help Amazon bring more dynamic, digital-like functionality to traditional TV ads?
  • Roku? (better hurry as the price keeps going up)
  • A giant rival asset in the vein of Pinterest (with its seemingly highly complementary shopping-centric use-case)?
  • Snapchat? Spotify?
  • A TV company like Viacom or Scripps/Discovery?

When theoretically spending from Jeff Bezos’ checkbook, the possibilities seem endless.

Amazon did not respond to a request for comment for this story.

Auroras will soon be very rare — but scientists are predicting a big comeback

aurora australis nasa space station ex52 june 25 2017

First, the bad news for stargazers: Auroras are going dark in many parts of the world.

The number of these atmospheric light shows won’t bottom out for several years, which means locations far from Earth’s poles — such as the UK and northern continental US — may rarely if ever see the Northern Lights during that time. A study published earlier this year hints this dearth of auroras may last for decades.

But there’s plenty of good news.

This coming dip in auroras is normal and expected, due to what scientists know about a repeating 11-year cycle of solar activity. The sun just finished its last peak, called a solar maximum, in 2014, during which time researchers saw more sunspots, outbursts of solar particles, and auroras on Earth. Around solar minimum — in 2020 or 2021 — the reverse is expected to happen.

“My personal prediction is that, over the next couple of years, we’ll see a deep dive of solar activity into solar minimum, and fewer and fewer auroras will be seen,” Doug Biesecker, a physicist at NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, told Business Insider.

The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is seen over the sky near the village of Pallas (Muonio region) of Lapland, Finland September 8, 2017.  REUTERS/Alexander Kuznetsov/All About LaplandThis doesn’t mean Earth will be devoid of auroras; anyone can make the trip to Arctic or Antarctic regions where auroras are persistent at night.

What’s more, Business Insider has learned that the next solar maximum, set to occur around 2025, should be as strong or stronger than the one we just saw, bringing an eventual boost in the number of at lower-latitude auroras.

“There will be a ramp-up in solar activity a couple of years after solar minimum, and auroras should increase in frequency,” Dean Pesnell, a solar physicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, told Business Insider. Pesnell and his colleagues just submitted an as-yet unpublished study about this prediction, which is based on magnetic activity at the sun’s poles.

The other good news? That decades-long void of auroras may never pan out.

The problem with predicting auroras

pumpkin sun coronal loops nasa sdo

The sun constantly spews protons and other particles into space, and when they reach Earth, the planet’s magnetic field grabs them and accelerates them toward the poles. As those particles slam into the atmosphere, they light up its gases like a neon light.

This happens every night close to Earth’s poles, but strong outbursts of solar particles, like coronal mass ejections, can sometimes expand auroras down to states like Maine, North Dakota, New York, and even Colorado. And during solar maximum, such particle outbursts are more frequent.

“The places where the aurora is common, it’s always going to be common. It’s more a case of, ‘is Colorado or North Dakota going to see it?'” Biesecker said, adding that an aurora’s intensity isn’t tied to the solar cycle. “Unfortunately, not as much during the solar minimum.”

Earlier this year, a January study in Nature Scientific Reports hinted that the next dip in solar activity might last for decades. The researchers examined the past 400 years of records of solar activity, and their computer model indicated we’re in store for a few extra-boring 11-year solar cycles — and a related famine of auroras.

Yet both Biesecker and Pesnell said that long-term predictions are devilishly hard to trust.

sunspotRecords older than 250 years aren’t very reliable, Biesecker said. Even the past 250 years of observations of sunspots — the hallmarks of solar activity — are hard to trust in part because it’s subjective; where one astronomer saw one solar blemish, another may have seen two. But solar physicists can always talk to whomever recorded previous observations.

“A new data point basically shows up once every 11 years. So very few people make it through two or three solar cycles in their research,” Pesnell said. “They either go do something else or they die.”

Then there’s the mystery and chaos of the sun itself.

A roughly 25-day-long rotation or “day” to the sun is what drives its activity. This gradually twists up the star’s magnetic field lines like a rubber band, forming kinks that can lead to sunspots and solar outbursts. But these surface contortions don’t appear to affect anything deep inside the sun — which means the star doesn’t have any kind of long-term “memory” scientists can exploit to predict its behavior more than a few years out.

“There’s no compelling evidence that the sun ‘knows’ it’s supposed to get weaker or return to normal at some future 11-year cycle,” Biesecker said.

For now, the researchers said, all we can do is wait to see if there are as many or more auroras as the sun winds up toward its next maximum in 2025.

“Eight years from now,” Pesnell said, “we’ll know if our prediction was right.”
