Our guest today is crypto-derivatives expert and Bloomberg contributor Aaron Brown.
Aaron is the former Managing Director and Head Of Research at AQR Capital Management (the world’s second-largest hedge fund with over 63 billion under management).
Today’s conversation is a deep dive into the topic of crypto and bitcoin derivatives. This is a timely discussion, as CME Group, Cboe, LedgerX, and Nasdaq have all launched -- or announced plans to launch -- Bitcoin derivatives markets.
Many believe that these announcements have fueled the huge gains we have seen in the price of Bitcoin in October, November, and December of 2017.
