A major Israeli broker has defied central bank Bitcoin warnings to advocate Bitcoin trading options on the country’s largest stock exchange.
What’s Good For CBOE Is Good For Us
In comments to local media outlet Globes, Julien Assous said there is “definitely room” for listing Bitcoin futures on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE).
Assous is CEO of IBI Brokerage, as well as chairman of an association made up of non-banking TASE members.
In stark contrast to Israel Securities Authority chairman Shmuel Hauser, who this week said he would “not allow” cryptocurrency companies to list on TASE, Assous sees a major advantage for Israel in doing so.
