Bitcoin has hit a new all-time price high after CME Group says it will offer futures trading.

Bitcoin has hit new all-time price highs on its ninth birthday today as CME Group announces futures trading.

Investors still celebrating the weekend’s record-breaking $6,300 have little to fear this Halloween as renewed momentum coming from CME takes Bitcoin within reach of new heights.

The latest surge, which began late last week, initially pulled major altcoins along with Bitcoin, but the trend has since faltered.

Bitcoin Cash, in particular, has reversed the top of its gains which saw the fork hit multi-week highs approaching $500.
