The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has cleared the way for crypto derivatives provider ErisX to offer futures contracts with a new license approval Monday.
ErisX announced, which is backed by U.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has cleared bitcoin derivatives provider LedgerX to offer physically settled bitcoin futures contracts.
The CFTC said Tuesday it had approved LedgerX’s application for a designated contract market (DCM) license, meaning the company can now offer the new futures contracts.
The Intercontinental Exchange’s pending bitcoin platform Bakkt plans to begin testing its two futures contracts on July 22 of this year.
In a blog post that likened Bakkt’s launch to the Apollo 11 moon landing, chief operating officer Adam White wrote Thursday that the platform will “initiate user acceptance testing” for its bitcoin futures contracts, which will be listed and traded by its parent company.
Bitcoin futures exchange Bakkt announced it was moving forward with its plan to launch physically-settled bitcoin futures products Monday.
In a blog post, Bakkt CEO Kelly Loeffler wrote that Bakkt had “worked closely” with the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the regulatory agency in charge of overseeing derivatives products in the country, and would be testing its bitcoin futures contracts this summer.
Cryptocurrency derivatives provider LedgerX plans to become the first U.S. firm to offer physically settled bitcoin futures contracts.
The company announced Monday that it has filed for a designated contract market (DCM) license, which would allow LedgerX to offer physically-settled bitcoin futures products to its customers. Unlike the cash-settled bitcoin futures offered by CME Group (and previously, Cboe), customers would receive the actual bitcoin underlying a contract after it expires, rather than the U.
Two major markets for bitcoin futures contracts saw a major boost in volume on Wednesday.
Available market data shows that CBOE saw its highest-ever volume for bitcoin futures since it first debuted the contracts back in December.
The Cboe wants to change the way it prices bitcoin futures contracts, a move that comes just months after the exchange operator first debuted its inaugural cryptocurrency product.
In a newly published letter to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) dated April 17, CBOE Future Exchange (CFE) managing director Matthew McFarland announced a proposed rule amendment that would lower the minimum increment on its futures contracts from 10 points (worth $10) to 5 points (worth $5) sometime on or after May 1.
Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency exchange OKEx has pushed back against allegations that it manipulated its bitcoin futures market last week.
As CoinDesk previously reported, OKEx rolled back futures trades due to what it called an “irregular” sell-off on Friday. At the time, futures prices sharply diverged from the underlying price of bitcoin, leading to a series of liquidations and the eventual rollback, which was initiated that afternoon.
At press time, the price of bitcoin remains virtually unchanged since our previous coverage and is still hovering within the $6,400 range. Apparently, $6,400 has become the new $6,500, or the spot where bitcoin feels the most comfortable. The currency spent several days, if not weeks, traversing the $6,500 boards, but following a $300 drop late last week, bitcoin has only managed to recover $200 of those “lost funds.” It’s unsettling, but at least the coin isn’t falling any further.
BTC is, for the most part, trading on a flat range, though it is experiencing low volatility.

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon might consider bitcoin to be a “fraud” that “will not end well,” but one of his top strategists anticipates that the launch of bitcoin futures could turn cryptocurrencies into “an emerging asset class.”
As reported by CNBC, Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, a global markets strategist at JPMorgan, said Friday that the addition of bitcoin futures contracts to regulated trading platforms will lend credibility to cryptocurrency, making it more appealing to both institutional and retail investors.
