Bitcoin.com, which is backed by popular crypto investor Roger Ver, has started to negotiate with various brokers and exchanges in order to launch regulated BCH futures in the United States.
According to David Shin, the new head of its exchange division, the firm is already negotiating with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and is interested in "speaking with CME about listing a BCH future." He has said:
"Within a year I want to make that the second- or third-largest market cap. To get from No. 4 to No. 3 or No. 2, we have to see more volume. We’ll try to list a BCH future on one of these exchanges that’s CFTC regulated to therefore have a product that can be traded into the U.S. with institutional traders. In theory we should see more penetration, more users, more trading and more volume."
Recently it was known that the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) is considering the possibility of launching additional products for bitcoin, however, there was no mention to BCH futures.
