The world’s second-largest stock exchange in the world, the Nasdaq exchange, has officially confirmed its plans to launch Bitcoin futures in 2019. Late last week, unofficial reports surfaced of the exchange launching these plans, first reported by Bloomberg.

Joseph Christinat, VP of Nasdaq’s media team, spoke to the UK’s daily tabloid The Express yesterday and confirmed the plans. The VP states that these futures will be listed and launched in the first half of 2019—no official date has been given at this time.
