Bitcoin Futures Trading Tumbles 93% as Day Two Begins: Chart

(Bloomberg) -- Bitcoin began its life on Wall Street with a bang, but day two is shaping up more like a whimper. Just 147 bitcoin futures expiring in January changed hands on Cboe Global Markets Inc.’s exchange in the five hours through 1 p.m. Tokyo time Tuesday, worth a notional value of $2.6 million. That’s down from about $35 million traded during the same period on opening day. Prices for the contracts fell about 5 percent on Tuesday, after surging 24 percent in their debut.
