Bakkt recently announced its opening a new exchange that will offer Bitcoin daily futures trading on Wednesday, December 12th 2018. So it seems like a big deal as Bakkt is part of ICE Futures U.S Inc which is a parent company of the New York Stock exchange.
The tweet below shows its announcement:
Our first contracts will be physically delivered Bitcoin futures contracts versus fiat currencies, including USD, GBP and EUR. For example, buying one USD/BTC futures contract will result in daily delivery of one Bitcoin into the customer’s account.

The most exciting thing about this is to see how this would affect the price of BTC when this platform is out.
