By acquiring Ledger X, FTX will now be able to offer regulated crypto futures and options trading to the US market.
Although founded by 2 Americans, the company has only recently been unleashing plans to begin operations stateside.
“The majority of global crypto volume trades through derivatives, though most of that occurs on venues outside the U.S. But there’s ‘a deep demand’ from both retail traders and institutions for regulated crypto derivatives within the country.”
– President, FTX US
FTX has made several investments as part of its drive to gain exposure and operations in the world’s leading economy.
