Bitcoin is still not legal in the US, but that’s not stopping a handful of bitcoin companies from turning a profit on foreign exchange deals.
As of February, the number of bitcoin-related companies in the country reached more than 5,000, according to data compiled by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
The industry is growing fast, and the bitcoin-focused companies have become a lucrative source of revenue for the companies.
The bitcoin companies are among those seeking foreign exchange partnerships from major exchanges like BATS and CBOE.
The firms sell bitcoin futures contracts to companies, including BATS, CBOE, and Nasdaq, which then buy the bitcoin for cash.
The companies then sell the futures contracts for cash, according the commission.
“These companies are selling their futures in bitcoin futures, which is the most stable currency exchange, and we can buy it and sell it for cash,” said Brian Pohlad, an analyst at Gartner, which tracks the bitcoin industry.
“We have to look at it in terms of what the profit is, and I think there’s a lot of upside in that.”
Bitcoin has been around since 2011 and has surged in value over the last year as a result of the global financial crisis.
The cryptocurrency is currently trading at more than $10,000 an ounce.
Bitcoin has also gained popularity among consumers and businesses as a way to move money between different currencies without a bank account.
The currency is often sold for bitcoin by people and companies who don’t want to deal with the traditional banking system.
“The bitcoin boom is a really exciting opportunity for bitcoin companies to generate a lot more revenue and expand their operations,” said Kevin Kelly, chief executive officer at bitcoin exchange BitMEX, which has partnered with BATS.
The boom in bitcoin trading has been fueled in part by a surge in demand for digital currency.
Many people have found ways to make money online by buying bitcoins and selling them for cash and other assets.
But the demand has also been fueled by bitcoin enthusiasts looking to cash out on the digital currency’s meteoric rise.
The price of bitcoin has also soared in recent months.
Last week, the value of a single bitcoin surged to more than US$3,000 on Coinbase, a popular bitcoin exchange.
But even more people have been buying bitcoin as the cryptocurrency continues to gain popularity.
Bitcoin prices have fluctuated widely over the past several months.
Some analysts have suggested that the price could be on track to hit a record high of US$10,100 an ounce by the end of the year.
Bitcoin futures contracts, however, have surged in price since last year, according that data.BATS has a partnership with Nasdaq to buy bitcoin futures for cash in the United States.
It currently sells the contracts for US$6,000 cash, but the exchange plans to sell the contracts in September for US $9,600 cash.
Nasdaq also plans to buy the contracts as cash for $6,400 cash in September.
Bitcoin futures contracts are not regulated by the Commodities Futures Trade Commission, which regulates other commodities markets.
But they are regulated by Commodites Group, which also oversees futures contracts.
According to the commission, Bitcoin futures are subject to federal securities laws, which limit the amount of bitcoin that can be traded.
Commoditees Group has filed a complaint against BitMex for engaging in speculation in bitcoin derivatives, and a complaint was filed against BATS last month.
BATS has not yet responded to the SEC complaint.
Pohlad said that the bitcoin companies can make money by selling bitcoin futures in the futures market, which are traded in pairs of bitcoin and a futures contract, but he said the companies can also make money on bitcoin contracts with futures contracts in the cash market.
The cash market is where the bitcoin contracts are sold, but is not regulated, Pohlads said.
Pahlad added that bitcoin companies have benefited from bitcoin being traded in cash and are getting cash out of it by selling futures contracts through their exchanges.
The companies that operate in the bitcoin markets, such as BATS Inc., offer bitcoin futures.
Bats has partnered up with Nasex and CBOEX to buy futures for the bitcoin.
Nasex has a $6 billion deal with CBOE to buy contracts from the company, according a company spokesman.
NasEx is also looking to buy Bitcoin futures in 2018.
According an SEC filing, Nasdaq plans to start selling bitcoin contracts in 2019.
