According to most analysts, the ground for the revival of cryptographic markets was prepared by the news of the SEC’s readiness to approve the very first Bitcoin-ETF, which will meet the criteria developed by the commission. The main trigger of a sharp rise in crypto banking was the news from the Bakkt team about the successful completion of the transaction to acquire part of the assets of the Rosenthal Collins Group.
It is known that the launch of trading at Bakkt will take place in the first quarter of 2019. According to the company's financial report, the cost of deploying a trading platform from the beginning of the year amounted to $ 20 million.
