Abstract

Bitcoin emerged as a cryptocurrency relying on new blockchain technology in 2009, but how to regulate it was not immediately clear. The recent emergence of bitcoin futures poses a new level of risk to the economy, again raising questions of regulation. This is the first law review article to examine the potential regulatory regime for bitcoin futures.

Keywords: bitcoin, bitcoin futures, futures
