While the market fell on Friday, the main news of the week remain the bullish revelation that the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) – the operator of 23 major world stock exchanges including the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) – plans to create a Microsoft cloud-based ecosystem for digital resources that would cover the spectrum from federated regulated markets and warehouses to commercial and consumer needs.  As reported by Cointelegraph today, Starbucks, one of the companies that collaborate with ICE to build the digital resource ecosystem, has clarified that it will not accept Bitcoin (BTC) or other cryptocurrencies as payment, later misleading reports from the media traditional.
The ICE also revealed that it will offer BTC futures contracts physically delivered starting this November, provided it gets the green light from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
Some analysts have suggested that physical delivery would have announced an important institutionalization of the crypto-landscape and be bullish for the markets – as distinct from the cash-settled Bitcoin futures contracts currently traded on the CME and CBOE exchanges.
