To achieve this, Bakkt offers trusted, regulated infrastructure, so market participants can access secure custody and trade on ICE’s regulated exchanges. ICE’s experience in technology, market access and compliance is being applied to bring the same benefits we’ve delivered across global asset classes: transparency, trust, and liquidity.
The launch of Bakkt® Bitcoin Futures contracts on ICE Futures U.S. represents the first futures contracts with CFTC-regulated on-exchange price discovery and physical delivery. This means that for the first time, price discovery and settlement will be set without reference to unregulated spot markets.
To complement futures, the Bakkt Warehouse is a cryptocurrency custody solution, using the same institutional standards, operational controls and security relied on by ICE’s regulated exchanges globally.
