CBOE Website Crashes As Bitcoin Futures Trading Begins

The CBOEs website crashed within minutes of the CBOE open on Sunday which also marked the launch of the first bitcoin futures to trade on a major exchange while the price of a bitcoin spiked 10% in five minutes as the new contract with the ticker XBT fluctuated wildly.

The embarrassing crash happened as the entire financial world was closely watching the first attempts at institutionalization of bitcoin:
