Fortune reported that The United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has granted approval to Cboe, one of the largest options exchanges in the country, to offer margined futures contracts for Bitcoin and Ether. This development comes as cryptocurrencies continue to gain mainstream acceptance and recognition as financial assets. With this approval, Cboe will be able to provide spot trading services under the same entity, allowing users to trade based on the current prices of Bitcoin and Ether.

The United States’ regulatory landscape for cryptocurrencies has taken another significant step forward with the approval granted to Cboe, enabling the exchange to offer margined futures contracts for Bitcoin and Ether. This move allows investors to gain exposure to the price movements of these digital assets in a regulated and secure environment.

Unlike other exchanges, such as CME, which already offer margined futures contracts for cryptocurrencies, Cboe’s approval goes a step further. In addition to providing margined futures contracts, Cboe will now be able to facilitate spot trading for Bitcoin and Ether. This means that users can trade these assets based on their current market prices, further enhancing the liquidity and accessibility of the digital currency market.
