CME Group started more than a century ago in Chicago as a place where farmers could lock in prices for their crops. Today, its exchanges — CME, CBOT (Chicago Board of Trade), NYMEX (New York Mercantile Exchange) and COMEX (Chicago Mercantile Exchange) — cover every major asset class, such as metals and energy and U.S. Treasury bonds.
In the first episode of Season 2 of my podcast, Unchained (Google Play, iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn Radio), she talks about CME’s current and forthcoming work with cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
And this coming year, it will launch a blockchain-based digital gold product, Royal Mint Gold, with The Royal Mint, a 1,000-year-old institution owned by Her Majesty’s Treasury in the United Kingdom.
Leading these efforts at CME is Sandra Ro, head of digitization initiatives. Ro, who came to CME five years ago, began her career managing foreign exchange and mergers and acquisition risks, and now directs FX research and product development for CME.
And now it’s making a foray into bitcoin. This past November, CME launched both a once-a-day bitcoin reference rate (BRR) and a bitcoin real-time index (BRTI) that updates every second.
