Coinbase Finally Wins Approval to List Crypto Futures in U.S.

Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase (COIN) can now list crypto futures in the U.S. nearly two years after applying for approval. Coinbase has secured approval from the National Futures Association (NFA) to operate a Futures Commission Merchant (FCM), the exchange announced on Wednesday. The NFA is a self-regulatory organization with designation from federal derivatives regulator the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). COIN shares on the Nasdaq are up over 6% at $84.20 in pre-market trading. The approval makes Coinbase the first crypto-focussed platform in the U.S. to offer regulated and leveraged crypto futures.
