As Institutional interest in cryptoassets continues to increase, investors are turning to the crypto derivatives markets for liquidity, risk management strategies and product innovation. The July 22, 2020 announcement from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) that clarified Federally Chartered Banks and Thrifts may provide custody services for cryptoassets will likely serve as a catalyst for further expansion of the cryptoasset and related derivative markets. What does it take to create and operate a regulated crypto derivative exchange? How can exchange operators create innovative products that facilitate market growth? What are the unique challenges of venture capital investing in such rapidly evolving markets? Please join ISITC for a focused discussion on the role derivatives are playing in the maturation of the cryptoasset markets.
