One of the main newsmakers of the last week was the project Stellar. On March 12, the Stellar Development Foundation introduced a new logo, abandoning the “spacecraft”, which has long been associated with this cryptocurrency. The very next day, the leading US cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase Pro announced support for Stellar (XLM). Soon we can expect the appearance of XLM on the main platform Coinbase.com and in mobile applications.
The Chicago Stock Exchange (CBOE) said it would not add new Bitcoin futures contracts in March under the pretext of revising its approach to working with this tool. Previously posted Bitcoin futures remain available for trading. This means that the last of the contracts currently being traded: XBTM19 - will expire in June of this year. At the same time, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) announced that it does not intend to suspend trading in Bitcoin futures or exclude them from listing.
