ErisX Bags License For Cryptocurrency Futures

ErisX, a Chicago-based crypto exchange has procured a derivatives clearing organization (DCO) license from the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

According to a post on Medium on July 1st, ErisX is planning to make digital asset futures contracts available for trade on its regulated derivatives market this year.

General Counsel at ErisX, Laurian Cristea remarked that when the digital asset futures become available, the exchange will offer a single platform that accommodates both spot and futures trading.

ErisX launched its spot market in April. At press time, the ErisX spot market exchange are U.S. dollar trading pairs with bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), ether (ETH) and litecoin (LTC).

 ErisX reportedly held a Designated Contract Market (DCM) license since 2011. The platforms CEO Thomas Chippas, said the exchange stands apart from others in using a DCO and DCM two-stream system to separate trading and settlement. He said:

“ErisX is unique in that for our digital asset market, we have divided the trading and settlement functions using traditional DCM (exchange) and DCO (clearing) models… This reflects the structure that institutional investors expect from other asset classes and will help drive these markets toward greater relevance and accessibility.”


  1. I operate a vape store directory site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that also sells CBD items. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop web directory. We do not retail CBD items like CBD oil. We solely offer online marketing services to CBD firms. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health Merchant and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they offer for sale a comparatively comprehensive series of CBD product lines, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It seems that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment choices and right now, I am seriously dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have gotten in touch with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is definitely not legal and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am still to talk with an additional legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
