Title: In the vaults / Helyette Geman, Henry CW PriceAuthor: Geman, Hélyette
Notes: Sumario: Blockchain technology and the trading of bitcoin were introduced in October 2008 in the famous paper by Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then, a number of other cryptocurrencies have been created. However, bitcoin remains the most prevalent. Financially settled futures contracts using bitcoin were introduced in December 2017 by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). Another large exchange, Intercontinental Exchange Inc (ICE), started trading in physically settled bitcoin futures through its Bakkt unit in October 2019, highlighting similarities between bitcoins and commodities, and making the concept of warehousing not only relevant but critical. This, in turn, triggered a large number of off ers for storage insurance by companies like Lloyd's, Aon, ING and other large insurers.Related records: En: The Actuary : the magazine of the Institute & Faculty of Actuaries. - London : Redactive Publishing, 2019-. - 02/03/2020 Número 2 - marzo 2020 , 20-22Materia / lugar / evento: Blockchain Bitcoin Moneda electrónica Empresas de seguros Other authors: CW Price, Henry
