The Rise of the CryptoCurrency
Bitcoin is about to make another credibility step forwards with the recent announcement that the New York Stock Exchange will provide a NYSE Bitcoin Index (NYXBT) offering sight into the U.S. dollar value of one bitcoin. It will be interesting to see if NYXBT causes an uptick in interest around blockchain/bitcoin from software engineer in the finance vertical who have historical not had an interest in the peer-to-peer platform.
The main are of interest from my perspective is the algo trading opportunities. There are a number of entry points to algo trading:
- Cloud platform – tradewave and Cryptotrader.
