One of bitcoin's biggest problems is its price volatility. 

Also, because of volatility, bitcoin mining is a more speculative investment/business than btc/fiat currency trading.

If a futures contract market were to develop for purpose of reducing risk in investing in equipment in BTC mining, would this help to stabilize the USD price of BTC?

Would a futures market move the more speculative BTC investors, who are addicted to (and likely cause) the current volatility of BTC, into trading futures rather than BTC?

There was a futures company that existed in the Fall last year but I think it went under (or scammed ppl out of money), either way it's possible to have a futures market and companies are emerging.

There already are derivatives in BTC.
What is missing is fractional reserve banking.  Grin
