Cboe Digital has successfully launched margined Bitcoin and Ether futures and made its first margined Bitcoin futures trade. In a press release, the crypto native exchange and clearinghouse claimed that it was the first US regulated firm of its kind to “offer both spot and leveraged derivatives trading on a single platform”.

In a statement, Cboe Digital president John Palmer called the move a “significant milestone” in the firm’s goal to ”unify the crypto spot and futures market”. Cboe Digital has plans to “expand its product suite to include physically delivered products, pending regulatory approval”.
