ErisX Secures More Regulatory Approvals
The move is part of a broader industry’s initiative to reveal daily trading volumes, potentially challenging the dominance of benchmarks administered by independent aggregators.
ErisX, which is backed by US brokerage TD Ameritrade, has recently secured the CFTC’s approval to expand its clearinghouse capabilities to clear all futures and swaps. Before that, it was only allowed to clear virtual currency futures contracts, which are listed for trading on Eris Clearing’s affiliate, Eris Exchange.
While its contracts vie with the Bakkt’s futures in trading physically delivered Bitcoin, ErisX was the first digital asset exchange to offer both spot and futures markets on the same platform.
Further, the three-year startup has made its products available via US brokers licensed as futures commission merchants (FCMs). Additionally, ErisX launched its own physically-settled Ether futures contracts, meaning investors receive real cryptocurrency and not the cash equivalent. The move came shortly after the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) granted  of this year to ErisX.
