Voice | John McAfee: BTC will continue to rise: John McAfee tweeted that, like voting in elections, we have to look at the long-term.

One possible reason for the growing interest in CME Bitcoin futures could be the recent devaluation of the U.S. dollar, eToro analyst Simon Peters told Decrypt.

“Institutional investors are increasingly backing bitcoin as a potential inflation hedge,” he said.

Charles Bovaird, vice president of Quantum Economics, also said: "Earlier this week, the open interest of CME Bitcoin futures trading exceeded $800 million, an increase of more than 100% from $365 million in July. This development is institutional Strong signal of rising investor demand."

“As to why they are more interested than before, I have a feeling that digital assets and blockchain technology are becoming more mainstream. Governments around the world are trying to create central bank digital currencies, and the proposed Libra project and the popularity it generates has accelerated this development."

Bovaird added that "pervasive money printing by central banks around the world" was also a factor. "All things being equal, having more units of currency, such as the dollar, chasing the same amount of goods and services will increase inflation," he said.

Interest in bitcoin's regulated derivatives market reached new heights earlier this month, shortly after U.S. regulators approved banks to offer crypto custody services to their clients, signaling further acceptance of crypto assets in the traditional financial world.
