US Government Shutdown Derailed Bitcoin ETF Talks, Says VanEck CEO
The bitcoin ETF proposal was pulled due to the government shutdown, VanEck CEO Jan van Eck said Wednesday.
The firm's early investment in derivative platform ErisX may enable the firm to expand their crypto investment opportunities.
The CFTC just granted ErisX a derivatives clearing organization license, green-lighting it to launch physically-settled bitcoin futures contracts.
LedgerX has launched the first physically-settled bitcoin futures contracts in the U.S., beating Bakkt to the punch.
Aspiring crypto derivatives provider ErisX took one step closer to its ultimate goal Tuesday with the launch of a spot market.
Crypto trading firm ErisX has hired a COO from megabank Barclays and a head of infrastructure from YouTube.
