For contracts, pricing is the main factor which will either attract or repel the potential customers. For any Bitcoin company, if the pricing is set to a minimal level, users will definitely take up the potential risk and invest in such companies. On the contrary, if pricing is a bit higher, it will probably attract the high paying scale customers.
In terms of CME, minimum price fluctuations are kept at a minimum amount of $5 per bitcoin. Such amount is kept based on different customers perspectives and will surely be bought by the majority of the people. All in all, it represents a total of $25 for each one.

Trading will not be permitted outside the 20% above and below prior settlement price,” CME explained.
With CME working relentlessly to implement their Bitcoin Futures, bitcoin traders as well as the new customers will have a keen eye on such Bitcoin revolution and will be looking to gain maximum profits in the long run.
