The derivatives exchange announced it would launch cash-settled ether futures in mid-December. They began trading on Sunday evening, with the first contracts purchased at 6:00 PM ET on Feb. 7. Since then, CME has seen 121 unique, active accounts trading the offering.

In total, 1,856 contracts were traded last week, which comes out to about 92,800 ETH, roughly $160 million. A third of the week’s volume came during non-U.S. trading hours, and 27% of volume came from outside the U.S.

The ether futures product joins CME’s popular bitcoin futures product. Bitcoin futures saw nearly 1,000 contracts, approximately $100 million worth of bitcoin, traded on opening day.
