According to the analytical agency, the interest climbed after the first announcement of Bakkt at the end of August 2018. Bakkt launched its much-anticipated product – a ”physically settled monthly futures contract for bitcoin held in the Bakkt Warehouse” this September, but the trading volume was perceived as low, which could cause a stir in the crypto community.
