What are your thoughts on the Russian bitcoin ecosystem? There have been some reports of bitcoin being banned at different times in Russia. . . do you have any thoughts about that? Is bitcoin used as an investment or payment channel often in Russia?
What if a hard fork happens and the end result is two chains -- the Bitcoin Core (1mb chain) and the Bitcoin-XT chain. Each side then has its own price. Does the contract settle on the Bitcoin Core price, or the XT price (assuming XT remains the longest chain)?

In 2011 my friend introduced me to the world of bitcoins and shortly thereafter a thought came to me: if bitcoins are an equivalent of money, a new money so-to-say, they should have their own financial instruments. Especially such important instrument as futures contracts and options.
Since then I started developing the first futures exchange, which opened to public in November, 2011.
Throughout our history there were many good and bad moments, however one thing really sticked: the inverse futures contracts model which I developed turned out to be a great success. It was and still is used by most of our competitors, it was published in Swiss Derivatives Review, and a new research article about them is on the way (preview will be available shortly).
Besides of that I'm mostly known for ReactOS project, which I'm coordinator of. It's an open source reimplementation of Microsoft Windows NT compatible operating system.
I will be glad to answer any of your questions!
Where do you get your bitcoin news mostly? Do you get your news from reddit (and the censored r/bitcoin or some of the other reddits)?
