Shipkevich Bitcoin and ICO Attorney
Felix Shipkevich April 20, 2010

The CFTC approved the applications of Cantor Futures Exchange, L.P. for designation as a contract market and Cantor Clearinghouse, L.P. to be registered as a derivatives clearing organization.

Cantor also has requested approval from the CFTC of a contract related to domestic motion picture box office receipts.  The Commission is still considering that contract.  Moreover, given the novel nature of the contract that Cantor has proposed trading, the CFTC has requested, and Cantor has agreed, that rather than self-certifying such contract, Cantor will submit all new classes or categories of media-related contracts it intends to list for approval by the Commission.  The Commission has not approved the trading of any futures or options related to box office receipts at this time.
