Interactive Brokers CEO Peterffy give Bitcoin 5 years life expectancy
In the meantime they will offer clients to trade bitcoin
However, they will
- Not allow shorting
- Will charge 50% margin.
- Commissions will be $5 vs $0.25-$0.80 per contract for normal futures contract
Oh...He also expects bitcoin to only last 5 years before it goes to $0, but could see the price go to $100,000 too.
Sounds like a broker to me...
