Banks Grapple with Bitcoin Futures

Bitcoin futures debuted on Wall Street Sunday by the CBOE and some of the biggest banks are unsure whether or not to offer them to clients; JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup are playing a wait and see game; some firms are excited to get started though they are hesitant to open discuss it as they risk potentially contradicting previous statements by their CEOs; the volatility is the biggest concern for banks as they just are not comfortable with the wild swings.
