It offers physical settlement of all contracts, as well as algorithmic trading for institutional investors, among other services, according to a release.

The only 5 licensed derivates platforms in the United States are:

  • CME Group
  • Bakkt
  • LedgerX
  • Bitnomial
  • AriseX

LedgerX was recently acquired by leading crypto exchange, FTX, and renamed to FTX US Derivatives.

The deal gives FTX.US a slew of licenses granted to LedgerX by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. As such, the exchange can move to offer crypto futures, swaps and options to U.S. retail traders.
