Bakkt has confirmed that it has started testing two types of contracts: with daily and monthly settlements. Futures are traded on ICE Futures U.S. and are cleared through the ICE Clear U.S. infrastructure.

The test was originally scheduled for December 2018. However, due to regulatory issues, it was put off till January 2019, and then indefinitely.
