FTX US is preparing to offer derivatives
The idea of offering crypto derivatives to US customers has been in the works for months.
In October, FTX US took its first steps to expand its services to derivatives by acquiring Ledger Holdings, the parent company of LedgerX, a regulated crypto derivatives platform.
After the takeover, the crypto exchange renamed LedgerX to FTX US Derivatives.
FTX US receives licenses for derivatives
Shortly after the deal was concluded, the exchange received three licenses. These included a Designated Contract Market (DCM) regulated by the CFTC, a Swap Execution Facility (SEF) and a Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO) in order to be able to offer derivative services to crypto users in the USA.
Earlier this month, FTX.com, the parent company of FTX US, announced that its American division has become a member of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA).
“We are pleased to announce that FTX US is now a member of @ISDA. We look forward to working with ISDA and their CEO @ScottOMalia to further build crypto derivatives markets in the US and worldwide, ”said Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), CEO of FTX.
ISDA is a private trading organization that helps improve swaps and derivatives trading, identify and reduce risks for derivatives users.
FTX CEO: Regulation Slows Down Crypto’s Growth
Meanwhile, FTX.com is also trying to expand its product offering with regulatory compliance.
Last week, Bankman-Fried outlined the steps necessary to move crypto space forward in 2022, stating that the main problem holding back the growth of the industry is regulation.
