Bakkt to debut futures trading on Sept. 23
On Aug. 28, the much-anticipated crypto trading platform Bakkt announced on Twitter that its qualified custodian, Bakkt Warehouse, will begin offering storage of customer’s Bitcoin in early September.
Storage will start weeks before the scheduled launch of its platform for daily and monthly crypto futures in the United States on Sept. 23. The platform will enable physical delivery of Bitcoin with end-to-end regulated markets and custody.
The Bakkt Warehouse, a part of Bakkt Trust Company, was developed using the same cyber and physical security protections as New York Stock Exchange, which is also operated by Bakkt’s parent company Intercontinental Exchange.
Bakkt’s physically delivered futures have been the subject of much anticipation from the crypto community as the company faced multiple delays in launching the platform due to compliance issues.
