In just a few short years, the cryptocurrency market has exploded from a niche asset class to a multi-trillion-dollar market, and clients are increasingly demanding ways to take part. The opportunities for both investors and institutions are substantial, but a nascent and disparate infrastructure, combined with the decentralized nature of crypto assets, presents risks as well.
In the past year, digital asset derivatives have accounted for a higher % of digital asset transactions than cryptocurrencies traded in the spot market. Recognizing this tremendous growth, many of the leading firms in the digital asset sector have moved aggressively to purchase Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) regulated entities such as Futures Commission Merchants (FCMs), in order to offer digital asset derivatives to their clients. Other firms are actively exploring the possibility of registering as swap dealers with the CFTC.
In this webinar, subject matter experts will review the regulatory obligations that firms must meet with in order to comply with CFTC regulations related to offering digital asset derivatives.
