LedgerX to launch CFTC-regulated crypto derivatives exchange

New York-based LedgerX looks set to launch a cryptocurrency derivatives exchange regulated by the CFTC, with perpetual contracts being powered by Brave New Coin

Cryptocurrency futures and options exchange LedgerX has announced that it will launch digital currency perpetuals powered by Brave New Coin.

It will use Brave New Coin’s BTC and ETH price feeds for its perpetual products, which will be submitted to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) for its review and approval.

Backed by Digital Finance Group, LedgerX is the first CFTC regulated cryptocurrency derivatives exchange.

Fran Strajnar, Founder of Brave New Coin, said: “We’re pleased to work with LedgerX to integrate our high-frequency index engine. The industry has been anticipating the launch of additional these products, and for good reason. We believe LedgerX will be able to out-innovate the legacy competitors.”

“We look forward to continued work with LedgerX to ensure its exchange has access to the best digital asset data in the sector.”

LedgerX’s CEO, Zach Dexter, added: “As we started developing perpetual products, it became clear to us that Brave New Coin’s digital asset infrastructure and capabilities were key to helping us deliver the best product to our users.

“BNC has offered us the support we need as we scale up our offering in 2021.”

All contracts will be physically settled, with algorithmic trading opportunities being offered to all institutional investors.
