Is there a way to place put options on bitcoin?
There will be Bitcoin futures soon but, with this kind of volatily, how much margining will exchanges ask for and how much margining will players want to put up with?
That is a good point. Contrary to what many might think, speculative structures like a futures market tend to
Reduce volatility, at least in widely traded issues.

Future markets are usually a hedge against volatility, but how good these instruments can be for the foaming crazy horse that is BTC, it remains to be seen. Case in point, Bitcoin had a ridiculous 30% hike in the space of a few hours tonight. The only instruments that can tame such craziness are exotic options: barriers, binaries etc.

The moment CME and other mainstream exchanges will start trading BTC futures, people will start to realise what mess they are sticking their hands in.

Cryptocurrencies probably won't be going away anytime soon unless North Korea launches an EMP attack that erases all the server and computer data in North America. I almost bought 100 bitcoin when it was at $15 a bitcoin but I figured it wouldn't go anywhere. There was only really bitcoin at the time and a few other competitors close to a penny which are also expensive. I really hope an EMP attack so people really start avoiding cryptocurrency again and return to gold and silver that are real assets. I would honestly be a millionaire today if I had bought the crypto currencies.

One of the benefits of the bitcoin rally is that alt-right people and others who aren’t lackeys of the ZOG can receive payments in bitcoin after their Patreon and other accounts were cancelled by the forces of evil, and therefore received much more money than they otherwise would have. God is on the side of the alt-right.
