The agency said that it any written statements submitted to the committee will be published later on the CFTC website.
That decision was tied to an enforcement action against a bitcoin options trading platform. The agency settled charges later that month with bitcoin swap execution facility TeraExchange over alleged violations of the Commodity Exchange Act.
