Coinfloor, a London-based futures exchange will add the CoinfloorEX platform to its list of cryptocurrency futures offerings.
The trading platform, which provides bitcoin support, is targeted to provide crypto investment services to trading firms, professional and sophisticated traders and hedge fund managers.
Distinguishing itself from its competitors, Coinfloor will implement like-kind settlement.
Whereas, CBOE and CME Group, Inc. are delivering cash settlement on their crypto futures contracts, Coinfloor is motivated by a system that will promote transparency and discourage spot market price manipulation.
Concerns over a settlement scheme that would allow investors to manipulate the market price of cryptos upon their contract’s closure at the exchanges, allowing the investor to take advantage of the new manipulated price in purchasing the next batch of futures would be mitigated by settling crypto futures contracts in their underlying cryptocurrencies.
Launched in 2013, Coinfloor is well established and generally well regarded within the crypto community.
The company’s early peer to peer transaction system continues to this day as an idealized exchange model, having been copied by a number of newer crypto firms.
Coin-floor’s focus on ethics, transparency and security have guided the firm’s other offerings including a multi signature, secure, cold storage facility, which protects their clients’ crypto assets from hackers and other bad actors.
Through its monthly audits examining the firm’s solvency ratio, professional investment firms are provided with assurances as to Coin-floor’s cryptocurrency liquidity to cover their settlement obligations with investors through periods of price fluctuations.
As the fifth global exchange to launch bitcoin futures contracts, Coinfloor is well positioned to shape the direction of the crypto futures settlement process.
XBT, Coinfloor’s new bitcoin futures contract is set to launch in April 2018.
