    On today’s episode of Double Down, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the extreme volatility in cryptocurrency markets heading into Christmas.

    Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies soared throughout 2017 only to take a huge tumble during the Christmas holidays. Max and Stacy put the correction into context of an ecosystem that has bloomed from a small part of the financial system into a minor and yet major behemoth threatening the legacy banking system. But they say that if you can't beat them, join them, so the futures markets have now begun offering a contract on bitcoin. How does this impact the liquidity and thus volatility in the markets? Max Keiser explains.
