纽交所母公司宣布将推出数字资产平台和比特币期货

总部位于亚特兰大的纽约证券交易所(NYSE)母公司,洲际交易所(ICE)今日宣布,计划推出一个数字资产平台和一种比特币期货产品。

根据新闻稿显示,这个叫做Bakkt的数字资产平台将利用微软的云技术建立“一个开放的、受监管的、面向数字资产的全球生态系统”。该平台将允许消费者和机构在全球网络上交易、存储和消费数字资产。

该公司表示,它相信这个受监管的场所将为管理加密货币的“特定安全和结算要求”创造新的协议。

值得注意的是,洲际交易所还计划提供一份为期一天的“实物”比特币期货合约——这意味着比特币实际上是在特定日期交付的,这与其他以现金结算的产品不同。该产品预计将于11月上市,目前正在等待美国商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)批准。

该公司补充说,包括波士顿咨询公司、微软和星巴克在内的大公司正在为该项目提供风险管理和消费者体验方面的专业知识。

ICE创始人兼主席Jeffrey Sprecher在新闻稿中表示:

为了将受监管的、连接的基础设施与用于数字资产的机构和消费者应用结合起来,我们希望在全球范围内建立对这一资产类别的信心,与我们将透明度和信任带到以前不受监管的市场的过往经历保持一致。

Bakkt CEO Kelly Loeffler说:

Bakkt旨在通过提高效率、安全性和效用,为机构、商户和消费者参与数字资产提供可扩展的入口。

新闻稿还表示M12,微软风投部门、Galaxy Digital、Horizons Ventures、Alan Howard和Pantera Capital都已经或将要对该项目进行投资。

Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), the Atlanta-based firm that owns the New York Stock Exchange, announced Friday that it plans to launch a digital assets platform and a bitcoin futures product.

Called Bakkt, the platform will leverage Microsoft's cloud to build "an open and regulated, global ecosystem for digital assets," according to a press release. Effectively, it will allow consumers and institutions to trade, store and spend digital assets over a worldwide network.

Notably, ICE also plans to offer a one-day "physical" bitcoin futures contract – meaning bitcoin is actually delivered on a specified date, unlike other offerings that are settled with cash. The product is expected to launch in November, pending U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) approval, ICE states.

The company said that it believes that the regulated venues will create new protocols for managing "the specific security and settlement requirements" of cryptocurrencies.

The firm adds that major companies including BCG, Microsoft and Starbucks are providing expertise on risk management and consumer experience for the project.

Starbucks will also work to develop "practical, trusted and regulated" applications for consumers to convert digital assets into US dollars for use at the firm's outlets.

Jeffrey Sprecher, founder and chairman of ICE, said in the release:

"In bringing regulated, connected infrastructure together with institutional and consumer applications for digital assets, we aim to build confidence in the asset class on a global scale, consistent with our track record of bringing transparency and trust to previously unregulated markets."

"Bakkt is designed to serve as a scalable on-ramp for institutional, merchant and consumer participation in digital assets by promoting greater efficiency, security and utility," said Kelly Loeffler, CEO of Bakkt.

The release also indicates that M12, Microsoft's VC arm, Galaxy Digital, Horizons Ventures, Alan Howard and Pantera Capital are among the firms who have either invested in, or are expected invest in, the project.
