Share This Post

Two of the world’s biggest names in finance, Cumberland Global and Goldman Sachs, are offering clients alternative exposure to Bitcoin and Ether.

Last week, Cumberland, a major market maker, launched OTC bilateral options on the leading crypto pairs.

Goldman Sachs is following in its footsteps with similar contracts.

OTC options are created peer-to-peer through a safe and secure messaging system in contrast to standard options that trade on regulated exchanges.

Goldman Sachs and Cumberland will both offer bilateral options on their current OTC markets.

With the two financial giants adapting their crypto offerings, it can only be good news for crypto enthusiasts.

The price of  Bitcoin quickly rallied yesterday after the US executive order on crypto but fell shortly thereafter. This is an indication of the high fluctuation of this digital asset.
